Description

We could use your help!

On June 3rd between 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., teams of local business and civic leaders will take part in a walking tour (Business Walk) of the DeForest business community. A Business Walk is an economic development initiative that, in a short amount of time, allows local leaders to get the pulse of how their business community is doing. The goal of the Business Walk is to help create a unified voice, build a stronger relationship between the business community and local government, as well as, target and assist companies at risk to help foster a more prosperous business climate.

During this a half-day blitz, teams made up of Village and small business supporters will visit up to 150+ businesses. A Business Walk gathers responses from business owners and managers asking them how's business, what do they like about doing business in your area, and what can be done to improve doing business in your area.

The survey responses help to generate a simple, easy-to-read report that decision makers can use to help strengthen their local business community. We are looking for volunteers to help us that day and we would love your support. If you register to become a walker that morning there will be a training on the program and you will have the ability to ask questions.
