Janesville Small Business Council – Live Stream

March 9th, 2010 Comments off

Forward Janesville’s Small Business Council has been absolutely delighted with the member participation in its monthly Small Business Listening Sessions.  Attendee, Tawnya Hagen commented, “I will be opening All Season Runner (ASR) in downtown Janesville this month, and I love all the positive energy generated at the Small Business Listening Sessions.  I feel welcomed by the business community as I attempt to unite Janesville through running and staying active.  I feel confident that this group will support my efforts to thrive and grow in this community, so there will be no reason to travel to Madison or Rockford for a specialty running store.”

Guest speakers Vic Grassman, City of Janesville Economic Development Specialist and John Beckord, President of Forward Janesville will be featured at the March 11th Listening Session.  They are two of the five Rock County 5.0 partners, and they will provide an overview of the initiative and explain how it has been developed to revitalize and renew our area’s economy.  The participants at the February Listening Session were eager to learn more about the exciting initiative and to inquire about how they might assist in its promotion.

We encourage you to attend:  Thursday, March 11, 2010, in Forward Janesville’s large conference room at 14 S. Jackson Street.  The session is slated to begin at 7:30am and runs for approximately one hour.  A light breakfast will be provided by Cakes by Sheila.  If you cannot make it Thursday morning, watch the live stream by visiting courtesy of Small Business Technology Solutions.

This event will be held every 2nd Thursday, and it’s open to the public.  If you’re a small business person looking for advice, suggestions, resources or simply an ear, please join us.

For more information, please contact Laurie Huml Eckert, 608-757-3160 or

Mobile Hotspot at Business and Marketing Expo

Small Business Technology Solutions Moble Internet

This year’s Forward Janesville Business and Marketing Expo will be in a new location, the Helgesen Industrial Center on Janesville’s south side. The building is beautiful and provides virtually unlimited space for this year’s expo, but it has a few problems…the building currently is empty and has no internet connectivity and is the size of 4 football fields.

Forward Janesville was faced with a two problems, how they would provide WiFi access to all the expo exhibitors and visitors in a building with no connectivity, and cover the entire four football field area! That is where Small Business Technology Solutions comes in, we will be providing high speed wireless access throughout the building, without and physical changes or ISP’s dropping internet lines. This will be accomplished with our Mobile Internet Rental service. We will provide multiple connections to the internet via cell towers, and then distribute that service through the entire facility via WiFi. The system will consist of multiple 3G cell tower routers, connected to our wireless mesh system. We will install 6-10 WiFi access points with long range antennas through-out the building, blanketing the area with internet connectivity. All this will be accomplished without any physical changes to the building and when the expo is over we pack up leaving the space unharmed. Now everyone at the expo will be able to connect to the internet to check email, visit a client’s website, or just post about a new message on Facebook.

Be sure to visit our booth on Oct. 22 at the Forward Janesville Business and Marketing Expo, 2929 Venture Dr. Janesville WI 12-7pm
