Small business is the heart of our region. Without small businesses, northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin would be a far less vibrant place to live and work. The Entrepreneur Fund was founded in 1989 to promote and foster entrepreneurship throughout the region. Our mission is to actively partner with local entrepreneurs to stimulate the growth of successful businesses.
The Entrepreneur Fund is an economic development organization committed to growing the regional economy by boosting the abilities of the region’s business owners seeking growth. We provide business loans up to $500,000 and strategic services to entrepreneurs in 11 counties of northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. Our vision is to have vibrant communities across our region that are created and sustained by entrepreneurs.
The Entrepreneur Fund seeks a Grants Manager to fully execute our grant cycles, from beginning to end, while maintaining a robust data collection process of Entrepreneur Fund activities and our clients. This role is critical to growing our stable base of funding, exceeding funder expectations, and ensuring accurate and complete data about the organization’s activities and impact.
