Louisville Startups

Transparent Entrepreneurship Advice and Case Studies in Business Growth

Louisville is on the verge. On the list of states with highest percentage growth in entrepreneurial activity, Kentucky is listed in the Top 5. Thanks to places like the KY Innovation Network, 1,300 companies have received over $785 million—starting 6,500 new jobs in the state. Louisville is becoming known for their great culture in working and living spaces.

Hubs like StartupLouisville have events listed that allow people who are new in the Louisville startup scene to find events where they can make connections, share ideas, and grow as a entrepreneur and a company. Co-working spaces like The Park are known for their trendy offices and collaborative work environment.

For those who just picture Louisville a place for horses and bourbon, city dwellers urge that that’s not what Louisville is all about (though they do have bourbon to brag about).
