Fernweh Adventures – A New Travel Agency in New Ulm

Business Name
Fernweh Adventures

Why did you choose to open your business in New Ulm?
I have lived in New Ulm my whole life. I was happy to get rid of my daily commute for work and excited to bring a traditional brick and mortar travel agency back to New Ulm.

How has the New Ulm EDA/ helped you with your business startup?

The EDA has connected me with many free resources to assist in creating a business plan and walking me through various financial support options available. I also enjoy attending monthly networking meetings hosted by the EDA which gives me the opportunity to learn from other small business entrepreneurs. Being a small business owner requires wearing many hats, the EDA has been helpful in getting me in contact with the correct people and recourses available.

Tell us something exciting about your business
I am excited to expand my business into the New Ulm area and offer an option for those that want to meet in person to plan their vacations.
Have you cooperated/contracted with any other local businesses or people during your startup? Please give specifics.

It was important to me to partner with other local small businesses to get my start-up off the ground. These partnerships included Vantage Point Marketing, Nuvera, Tech Unlimited, Riverbend Business Products, Printwear Graphics, Sid’s Signs and New Ulm Chamber.

What advice do you have for anyone else thinking of starting a business in New Ulm?

I highly recommend reaching out to the local EDA, they have many resources available to connect you with the right people and information. They have been so helpful to me, even offering help in areas I didn’t know I needed.
