The Door County Economic Development Corporation hopes their recent investments will help keep a younger population at home to begin their careers. Last year, the DCEDC received a grant for a software platform called Inspire, designed to help connect area students with local businesses through its Door County Business and Education Partnership. DCEDC Executive Director Caleb Frostman says it is important recruiting tool as students decide to enter the workforce.
Frostman says there are currently 12 businesses signed on to be a part of Inspire. The Door County Business and Education Partnership works with area schools to set up job shadowing programs, group tours with different businesses, and career exploration activities.
