Iowa County Area Entrepreneurs of the Year awarded
Excerpted from The Dodgeville Chronicle
The Iowa County Area Economic Development Corporation (ICAE-DC) is proud to announce its first group of local business leaders chosen as Iowa County Area Entrepreneurs of the Year. The awards are being presented in conjunction with Global Entrepreneurship Week, Nov. 12-18, 2012.
Rick Terrien, Executive Director, says that the ICAEDC Board of Directors chose this year’s five winners as representatives of the diverse and exciting entrepreneurs and business leaders that call Iowa County home.
According to the Global Entrepreneurship Week website, this is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.
The celebration of Global Entrepreneurship week is about unleashing ideas and doing what it takes to bring them to life-spotting opportunities, taking risks, solving problems, being creative, building connections and learning from both failure and success. It is about thinking big and making one’s mark on the world-doing good while doing well at the same time.
Terrien says that Iowa County is home to some of the best entrepreneurs in the world, as represented by the distinguished recipients of the 2012 Iowa County Area Entrepreneurs of the Year.
The ICAEDC celebrates this year’s winners and welcomes new entrepreneurs to opportunities across Iowa County.
“This year’s award winners highlight both established and new businesses popping up all over Iowa County,” Terrien says. “This is an exciting time to be an entrepreneur, and Iowa County is a great place to grow new businesses.”
