Grants and Contracts Details


Scope of Work – Kentucky Small Business Development Center Louisville Metro (REACH) is establishing a partnership with the Kentucky Small Business Development Center (KSBDC) to pay for a business coach based in Louisville that would provide no-cost coaching, consulting, advising, counseling, and training services to start-up businesses, existing businesses, and entrepreneurs. This is a 50/50 cost-share arrangement. The KSBDC business coach acts as an important extension of our economic development team to assist Louisville 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 Louisville businesses in a non-traditional way. This partnership shares the cost 50/50 and provides technical assistance that may not otherwise be available. Agreement Highlights: • Stakeholder Agreement – The signed agreement will outline the partnership and Louisville Metro’s $30,000/year match to fund a full-time business coach in Louisville (including full salary, training, equipment, and access to resources). This match will be counted towards CORE 2023. • KSBDC will provide a scorecard that will be reported back to Louisville Metro, 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.
