Training program offers aid to Ky. entrepreneurs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville-area entrepreneurs can learn how to launch their products or businesses at an upcoming training program.

The program, called LaunchIt, is a 10-week course that starts Sept. 3. It's offered by Nucleus: Kentucky's Innovation Center.

It will be the sixth entrepreneur training program offered by Nucleus, which is an arm of the University of Louisville Foundation.

Nucleus CEO Vickie Yates Brown says the course will give start-up owners the training to successfully launch their businesses while avoiding the pitfalls others have encountered.

Applications for the course will be accepted through Aug. 23, and organizers say space is limited.
