Area business leaders to mentor under-performing businesses.

Keshena, WI – The Menominee Business Center (MBC) has been awarded a Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) to provide a mentoring program to assist existing rural and Tribal businesses that are under-performing. Local business owner Nicole Bowman, Bowman Performance Consulting, will be providing evaluation support to the RBEG program leaders and mentoring participants.

Bowman says, “As an established business, I’m excited to work with newer businesses. I give practical advice from my own successes and lessons learned. The real world setting will assist mentees to leverage the resources they have, despite limited capacity. Additionally, I’m looking forward to developing innovative performance metrics that will help the Menominee Nation with implementation and longer-term impact for the program.”

About the Mentor Program

The program will assist in the improvement of the Menominee Nation economy by creating and retaining jobs; provide low cost space for office, business, and light industrial users; support local business development programs; and stimulate private sector initiative on the Menominee Reservation.

During the mentorship, participants will take a readiness/capacity assessment. Then they’ll receive tailored training and technical support to develop their individual and/or organizational business capacity, infrastructure, knowledge, skills, and resources. At the conclusion, summative data will be gathered to measure project impacts and longitudinal changes from the initial baseline.
