Area entrepreneurs are getting a crash course in how
to grow their businesses.
Several young business owners gathered at Pearl Street
Brewery this afternoon for 'entre-palooza.'
The event offered entrepreneurs a chance to learn
how to do things like expand their social media platforms
and effectively use crowdfunding.
Two of the presenters were the co-hosts of a reality
T-V series called 'Amibitious Adventures' .
which profiles entrepreneurs across the country .
and is currently filming in La Crosse.
I think it's a great thing for La Crosse to be spotlighted
in the show because so many young entrepreneurs, they
feel like they've got to go to Austin, they've got
to go to San Francisco, they've got to go to New York,
Chicago, not knowing that there is funding, there
is support, there are resources and there's people
right here in your backyard, you don't need to leave,
you can do it here.
The show will premiere its first season in late February
or early March .
with La Crosse getting its own 30-minute episode.
