Each LIFTOFF community completes a rigorous experiential program to prepare them for launching a business in the Central Kentucky Bluegrass region. The first and most essential lesson the community learned (and then practiced) was the entrepreneurial mindset. LIFTOFF participants then move forward to learn CentreWorks’ Human-Centered Innovation Approach (HCIA) and how to implement it to develop their value proposition. They acquire knowledge of the HCA business model and foundational financial, legal, and digital marketing principles. The CentreWorks’ mission includes growing multiple LIFTOFF communities to build a regional innovation and startup culture and to spark new economic development and social enterprise opportunities. Keep an eye on our socials and website for our next LIFTOFF community and consider joining.
