Ballard County Partnership 2024-2025

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

Scope of Work – Kentucky Small Business Development Center The Ballard County Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) is establishing a partnership with the Kentucky Small Business Development Center (KSBDC) to pay for a business coach based in Ballard County that would provide no-cost coaching, consulting, advising, counseling, and training services to start-up businesses, existing businesses, and entrepreneurs. The KSBDC business coach acts as an important extension of our economic development team to assist Ballard County businesses with technical assistance, advising, counseling, and training to reduce business closures, and help businesses grow. A KSBDC coach can work with businesses one-on-one on business plan development, financial projections, and other technical details that are sensitive or confidential. Securing this partnership leverages partnerships and provides additional services to Ballard County businesses in a non-traditional way. This partnership provides technical assistance that may not otherwise be available. Agreement Highlights: • Stakeholder Agreement – The signed agreement will outline the partnership and the BCCC’s $10,000/year match to fund a full-time business coach in Ballard County (including full salary, training, equipment, and access to resources). This match will be counted towards CORE (account 3200005306 and another account to be established). • KSBDC will provide a scorecard that will be reported back to the BCCC, including total clients served, jobs supported, new business starts, capital infusion, number of coaching hours, number of training events, number of training attendees, success stories, and many other data points.
