Jackson County group creating club for entrepreneurs

SPARK Jackson County is announcing a new initiative that will be a social club for entrepreneurs and innovators in the community.

Organizers say the goal is to allow entrepreneuers to build their networks and their community by getting to know other “big thinkers” through the SPARK Club.

In October, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation announced a $40,000 grant to the Jackson County Chamber to start SPARK Jackson County. Among its goals is to kickstart the community’s entreprenueral ecosystem with targeted outreach to underserved founders and owners.

The first meeting of the SPARK Club will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the evening of March 7th upstairs at Reeds Place in Seymour. The come and go event is free and dress will be casual.
