Entrepreneurship

The state is hosting pitch competitions for budding entrepreneurs, who will present their business ideas to local investors in eight cities around the state.

FRANKFORT, Ky.  -- The state has created a new agency to help small businesses grow and create jobs.  The Office of Entrepreneurship is intended to enhance similar initiatives already in place.

Gov. Steve Beshear said Monday that by helping small companies that are so vital to Kentucky's economic health, the agency can improve the state's competitive position in the world.
