Entrepreneurs are the heart and soul of Startup Kentucky – a movement led by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
Startup Kentucky is a statewide initiative focused on Kentucky’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Its primary mission is to connect entrepreneurs with statewide resources and opportunities. We know Kentucky is an ideal location for high-growth, innovative companies and we want the rest of the country to know it too.
Through your ideas, support and involvement, Startup Kentucky can accelerate the formation and growth of early-stage companies. Startup Kentucky will bring together a coalition of mentors, entrepreneurial resources, funders, major corporations and service providers to create a statewide network of strategic resources dedicated to enabling entrepreneurs to scale their companies and achieve prosperity.
Startup Kentucky is part of a national network of state and regional efforts coordinated by the Startup America Partnership, a national organization working to help young companies grow in order to create jobs in America.
