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 each community learns (and then practices) is the entrepreneurial mindset. With this foundation, LIFTOFF participants learn CentreWorks’ Human-Centered Innovation Approach™ (HCA) 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 social media and website for our next LIFTOFF community and consider joining.
