Congrats Brew City Match Winners!
At Riverworks Development Corp, we’re fiercely dedicated to the success of the community we serve and the clients we support. Our Business Development HUB and Financial Clinic teams help guide entrepreneurs through the process of bringing their vision to a reality. Whether it’s an inclusive coffee shop, personalized mental health care, or anything in between, we connect these entrepreneurs with organizations like Brew City Match to secure key funding for their projects.
Brew City Match is an initiative that aims to revitalize commercial corridors by supporting MKE entrepreneurs to create and develop business plans, access financial resources, and secure commercial space for their business. Applicants for the program are reviewed and the winners receive grant funding that can be tremendously helpful in starting and growing their businesses. Riverworks' Business Development HUB coaches worked closely with entrepreneurs to submit funding applications, and we are thrilled to see so many of them awarded these grants! Check out all of the Brew City Match winners here!
"The winners highlighted here are prime examples of the talent, passion and vision Milwaukee has to offer. It's such a privilege to work alongside the Brew City Match Program to support them on their path to success!"
