Lessons Learned by Local Entrepreneurs
As part of Startup Wisconsin Week, Two Rivers BizStarts is proud to organize a panel discussion from local entrepreneurs about the lessons they have learned from starting and running a business here in Two Rivers. This not-to-be-missed event will be relevant to members of Two Rivers Main Street, the Two Rivers Business Association TRBA, The Chamber of Manitowoc County, Progress Lakeshore and other civic organizations.
We will feature a panel of new and more established local entrepreneurs who will share what they have learned about starting a thriving business in Manitowoc County.
Come early and network at the Basil Ishkabibble's Art Gallery & Artist Share-Space where you can see the work of local artists.

Show of Hands
Do you have a business idea you want to get started?
Maybe a line expansion in your current business?
Is your non-profit looking for funding for a specific project?
Do you have a small idea that can make a big difference in Two Rivers?
Show of Hands is your opportunity to get started!
Show of Hands is a community-supported crowd-funding event. Community members are presented with projects that would positively impact Two Rivers and vote on the project they want to support with donations from the door and generous support of our community partners.
If you or someone you know is working on a community project and would like funding to help move the project along, please fill out the application below. All projects are welcome to apply, but only four will be chosen to present at the next Show of Hands event.
HOW SHOW OF HANDS WORKS:
Attendees make a donation of at least $5 for a vote.
Four pre-selected proposals for projects that benefit the community are presented.
Attendees cast their vote for the project they want to help fund.
The project with the most votes receives all of the money raised at the door + contributions from community partners.
Winners come back to a future Show of Hands to tell the audience how their project went/is progressing, how they used the money, and the impact it had on the community.
Your attendance at Show of Hands is greatly appreciated and will show individuals presenting projects that they have the support of a strong community.
