A NetWork Kansas Entrepreneurship Community (E-Community) has made a commitment to cultivating an entrepreneurial environment by identifying and developing resources to help local entrepreneurs start or grow businesses. An E-Community has a locally-controlled loan fund to assist entrepreneurs with capital and connectivity to resources to assist entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The goal of the E-Community is to increase entrepreneurial activity.   Financial assistance through low-interest loans is one part of this.   E-Community designation also brings to the county connectivity to resources available to assist entrepreneurs and small businesses, and a partnership with other E-Communities. More details on the E-Community program can be found on Network Kansas’ website.
