NC should follow many Kansas Small Business Models
Jul 21, 2017 | By: Jake Hall
"To help increase its reach, Network Kansas has launched a network of qualified entrepreneurship communities. The 'E-Community' initiative is a partnership that allows a town, a cluster of towns or a county to raise a local loan fund based on the Startup Kansas model through donations from individuals or community businesses."
NC has been involved with a number of centers to aid small businesses including the N.C. Community College Small Business Center Network and the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship. For small business to flourish around the state, it would be beneficial for NC to learn from what Kansas has been doing with their small business economy.
