Meet Our Starters
We are inspired every day by the stories of the thousands of entrepreneurs supported by our CO.STARTERS members.
Meet Nancy, who makes yoga accessible and welcoming to everyone.
Meet Ricky and Kelli, the hard-working founders of Broad Street Peaux Boys & Nola Ice.
"Starting small has really been more of a necessity than a strategy – but it’s been paying off either way.”
“CO.STARTERS was that push I needed to launch… Because everything is laid out, you have no choice but to move forward. You just have to have the will to do it.”
“It was very helpful to be around a community of entrepreneurs and have a support system of people who are facing the same things you are facing.”
Bringing CO.STARTERS to La Crosse has brought new energy and excitement to the startup ecosystem in our community and it has allowed a bunch of entrepreneurs to gain access to cutting-edge effective material in a universally understandable format.
I could not have imagined a more beneficial and seamless fit with our mission of creative industries support than the CO.STARTERS curriculum. It feels tailor-made for our constituents.
CO.STARTERS brings, not only a practical, lean startup curriculum, in plain English, but a true community development vehicle that brings together the whole community...to help aspiring entrepreneurs validate their ideas and get started.
