Kentucky Jumps 45 Places in National Entrepreneur Ranking
After being near the bottom a year ago, Kentucky’s entrepreneurial climate is now one of the best in the nation.

Even though this is a significant jump, I’m not surprised we’re producing great results. Kentucky is a tremendous place to grow a business.”
