Small Business Center

Small Business Center Announcement

We're sad to announce that the WCTC Small Business Center will officially cease operations on August 27, 2022. The final semester of courses will be spring 2022. The Center has a long history of serving entrepreneurs since we opened our doors on August 27, 2001. It's been a long journey, but one that we've been both honored and privileged to take with you. If you have questions, please contact Russ Roberts at or 262.695.3468.
