Douglas County CORE is Ready to Connect, Create, Cultivate and Celebrate Entrepreneurs

As a new entrepreneurial enabler for our community, Douglas County CORE has been hard at work assessing our strengths and opportunities – with the shared understanding that together we can address the challenges and needs faced by existing or aspiring business owners. Through a series of inaugural events throughout the county, CORE has gathered input and created a blueprint of ecosystem components that influence our performance.

Also at these events, CORE has been inviting the community’s involvement to


 tackle the immediate organizational needs – in hopes of creating both a space for connections across the ecosystem and to ensure that CORE has the systems in place to successfully influence our success and reputation as a destination for innovation.

If you are inspired by the opportunity to make Douglas County home to a more robust entrepreneurial ecosystem, consider joining this effort. CORE is actively recruiting your thoughts and energy to help with several immediate-term working groups. Take a moment to review them and then let us know where your time and talents can be channeled.  

Interested in learning more? Join CORE for the fourth and final stop of their Inaugural Event Series in Lecompton on September 22 at 5 pm. Register here.
