LADYSMITH, WI -- Indianhead Community Action Agency (ICAA), Inc. is excited to announce a generous $10,000 grant supporting the Business Development program to help entrepreneurs in 12 counties throughout northwestern Wisconsin. Small business owners can receive free one-on-one help with business planning, marketing, advertising, website design, and more.

ICAA’s Business Development program works alongside small businesses to help them analyze their current trends, while providing guidance and support for future challenges through a variety of services, resources, and one-on-one consultations. Since its launch in 1999, the Business Development program has assisted more than 130 businesses with launching their startup across northwestern Wisconsin, which has created more than 200 full-time jobs within the program’s 12-county service area.

This is the second year ICAA has received the Associated Bank funding. Anna Ringstad, Business Development Manager, said, “We were able to further Associated Bank’s mission in 2021 by assisting 25 businesses with their needs and we are grateful for the opportunity to do the same throughout 2022. There are still businesses feeling the after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and each small business is critical to the community they serve. We are looking forward to our opportunity to serve entrepreneurs throughout the region in business planning, marketing, advertising, and so much more.”
