U.S. Foundation Grant to assist local entrepreneurs

VWAEDC  |  October 16, 2018

Local entrepreneurship is getting a boost from the U.S. Bank Foundation. Krista Somerton, second from right, and Stacy Adam, right, from the Van Wert Area Economic Development Corporation, received on Wednesday a $500 check from Terra Bonifas, Branch Assistant Manager, left, and Natalie Gibson, Van Wert Branch Manager. The U.S. Bank Foundation’s Community Possible Grant supports organizations that assist small businesses, and programs that enhance workforce skills and provide education in financial literacy. The funds will go to the winners of the annual Business Plan Challenge organized by VWAEDC. Participants in the challenge are also eligible for six weeks of free business classes provided by Wright State University – Lake Campus’ Business Enterprise Center at the VWAEDC office. The next Van Wert Entrepreneurial Fair, which kicks off the Business Plan Challenge, will be Feb. 2.
