Where Economic Vitality

Meets Quality of Life

Wisconsin River, Stevens Point

“Profile: Central Wisconsin” is a podcast from Mid-State Technical College and the Portage County Business Council that shares profiles of the entrepreneurs who make central Wisconsin such a great place to live and do business.

Hosted by Mid-State Stevens Point Campus Dean Ben Nusz and Portage County Business Council Executive Director Todd Kuckkahn, “Profile: Central Wisconsin” takes a deep dive into the origin stories of central Wisconsin’s local innovators and explores what the future holds for the community. New episodes are planned for release every two weeks.

This week, Ben and Todd are joined by Josh Stolzenburg,  CEO and Co-Owner of Northwind Solar! Find out what sparked his interest to travel to Mozambique and then return to Central Wisconsin to begin Northwind Solar. They’ll discuss how Northwind Solar started and then transitioned from an LLC to a Worker-Owned Cooperative before becoming the 2020 Wisconsin Renewable Energy Business of the Year!
