Wireless Internet touted for downtown Janesville

March 19th, 2010 No comments

By JIM LEUTE ( Contact )   Friday, March 19, 2010 – Thanks to the Janesville Gazette

Robert Novak IIIJANESVILLE — Robert Novak III thinks Janesville is a good community.

But, he said, it could use another checkmark next to the attributes that support quality of life.

That’s why Novak and his young Janesville company are spearheading an effort to bring free community wireless Internet access to the downtown area.

With a partner, Novak owns Small Business Technology Solutions, a technical service provider for homes, businesses and nonprofits. The company also has an office in Kenosha.

“I came up with this idea one day when I was sitting in Courthouse Park on Main Street just enjoying the day,” said Novak, who graduated from UW-Whitewater with a business degree with an emphasis in information technology infrastructure.

“I was just thinking about what can be done to drive more traffic to the downtown area and bring back the luster it once had. Then it hit me: How great would it be if the entire area was covered in free WiFi?”

Small Business Technology Solutions will donate the labor and equipment for the project, which Novak said could approach $10,000.

The company will ask downtown businesses to host small access points and donate a small portion of their high-speed Internet to create the network. In exchange, the businesses will get an ad on the network.

Donations to offset hardware costs will be accepted.

Novak, who lives in Janesville, said the project has two goals.

“The first is obviously to give patrons another reason to go downtown, enjoy all it has to offer and visit the local businesses,” he said. “The second is that all the ads shown on the network will target those people within walking distance of the business displaying the ad.”

Novak said he has met with city and downtown officials, and the response has been favorable.

“I think it’s a great idea, a real no-brainer,” said Laurie Huml Eckert, a vice president at Forward Janesville. “Robert and his company have been very supportive of the community and they’re real go-getters.”

Novak hopes to have the network off the ground in the Main and Milwaukee streets area when the farmers market opens for the season.

“We’ll grow from there,” he said.

“We are doing this to add one more check in the good column of all Janesville has to offer,” Novak said. “We want to show the community our company is here to stay and want to see this community succeed by giving back in the best way we know how.”

Janesville Small Business Council – Live Stream

March 9th, 2010 No comments

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 http://forwardjvl.seeus4it.com/small-business-council/ 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 lauriehe@forwardjanesville.com.
