RHINELANDER - People met at Nicolet College Wednesday to discuss new opportunities for those looking to start or expand their business in the Northwoods.

The Northwoods Entrepreneurial Network has been here for over 7 years.

This is the first time they are connecting with local business owners and other people to determine what type of businesses will likely succeed in here .


Michelle Madl-Soehren is the president of the Northwoods Entrepreneurial Network.

She wants to hear the voice of the community so they can share it in the next meeting.

"Tonight is all about idea generation and information gathering and the plan then is to take all of the information, put it together and then put it back out to the community and say here it is." said Soehren.

"And we're here for you."

Dan Kuzlik is the outreach specialist at the University of Wisconsin Superior.

He believes there are great examples of business that were built here and
continually growing in the Rhinelander community.

"That's the kind of business we want to grow here. Good business that create a living wage for to raise a family with." Kuzlik said.

"Clean industry because we talk to people and they love the environment up here."

The next meeting will be in March.

The program is free and open to the public.

If you're interested in contacting Michelle, you can call her at 715-365-4492 or email her at mmadl@nicoletcollege.edu.
