Entrepreneurship Task Force 

Established in 2013 to diversify the regional economy through the support of entrepreneurs who possess the potential for creating scalable companies, the ETF has two core focus areas aimed at accelerating and expanding opportunities for entrepreneurship in south-central Kansas: 1) Identify, activate and mentor an entrepreneurial ecosystem. 2) Identify, activate and invest in entrepreneurs.

One example of the task force’s work is the creation of Entrepreneur 2 Entrepreneur (e2e). Formed in 2015, e2e is a far-reaching, community-centric initiative that seamlessly provides mentoring, curriculum, hands-on support, connections, investment and collaboration to jump-start the creation and growth of new businesses and cultivate the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
