About The Fortville Entrepreneurship Initiative
The future of Fortville's economy and its contribution to Indiana’s continued success will be driven by entrepreneurship and innovation. With Fortville’s Entrepreneurship Initiative, area stakeholders and advisors experienced in and passionate about building a welcoming start-up culture will now recognize and more formally support the entrepreneurial talents of Fortville and surrounding Hancock County residents and businesses. This Initiative is designed to create connection, excitement, and focus in our localized ecosystem. Our audience is typically made up of Entrepreneurs (start-ups, local growing businesses, and idea generators), as well as Stakeholders (local businesses, quasi- and government bodies, academia, circles of residents interested in promoting economic development, and small business advisors); all of whom greatly benefit from this Initiative.
