“This is an exciting time to be an entrepreneur in Greater Green Bay,” says Kelly Armstrong, Vice President of Economic Development with the Chamber.  “We have more connectivity than ever and we continue to build out resources for entrepreneurs.  Our goal is to see these companies take root here and years down the road watch them hire their 100th employee.” 

Lamarr Banks, Urban Hub Community Manager, added “With the support of investors we were able to provide these companies with a $2,000 grant to help them build up to the next stage.” 

The Greater Green Bay Chamber is excited to highlight the four startups below:
