Beth Handle is the owner of Milwaukee Kayak Company, LLC. MKC rents kayaks, canoes, and stand up paddleboards from two downtown locations, giving Milwaukeeans and visitors a different angle of the city and the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and KK Rivers. Before starting her own business, Beth worked as marketing manager for outdoor adventure company Laake and Joy’s and spent quality time paddling a kayak on Milwaukee’s rivers. Dreaming of being her own boss, Beth saved money--for two years--so she could self-finance her start up and avoid year round loan payments for her seasonal business. MKC will start its sixth season this spring. Learn how Beth keeps MKC afloat and growing.
