Want to get to know a little more about De Pere area businesses?  The De Pere Area Chamber of Commerce is preparing for its fifth annual Business Walk on September 28th.  Teams of local volunteers and civic leaders will take part in a walking tour (Business Walk) of the De Pere area business community.
A Business Walk is an opportunity to chat with local businesses face to face to gather knowledge that will help foster a more prosperous business climate.
Volunteers participating in the Business Walk go business-to-business asking owners and managers a short list of questions to help better understand their business and thoughts on community development.
You are being personally invited to join as a designated volunteer walker. This year’s Business Walk is a single afternoon session. The tentative schedule is:

Date:  Tuesday, September 28, 2021

12:00 – 1:00  lunch & walk training/review of this year’s questions
1:00 – 4:00    Business Walk
4:00 – 5:00    survey turn in and debrief
During this one day blitz, teams paired in twos will collaboratively try to visit up to 100 businesses in De Pere.  Information gathered from the visits will be compiled into a report to use to prioritize economic development initiatives and guide business assistance. Past reports are available on our website here.
We hope you will agree to volunteer for this terrific experience.  If you are interested in becoming a De Pere Business Walk volunteer, please register.  Because we have to plan ahead, there is a deadline for signing up.  You can help us make planning easier by signing up right away and not later than September 17th.

De Pere Area Chamber Business Walk

The 2021 Business Walk included both in person visits and online responses. The combined effort resulted in 104 business responses – similar to the totals from the 2020 phone outreach, but down 25% from prior in person efforts. Participating businesses provided valuable input regarding the state of the business climate in De Pere as the community emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
