CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GRADUATES

LIFTOFF Communities

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. They learned and applied CentreWorks’ Human-Centered Innovation Approach (HCIA) to develop their value proposition. They learned the basics of the business model along with 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 centreworks.org website for the next LIFTOFF community formation and consider joining.

FUSION Communities

The FUSION Community Collaboration Groups are initiated to make our community stronger. CentreWorks is using a human-centered innovation approach to address this community challenge. We have assembled a team of bright, passionate, and community-minded students self-proclaimed “Team FUSION” to promote and facilitate community involvement in this endeavor. Team FUSION actively listens to understand and proactively seeks representation of all community voices in their support of this initiative.
