New Agenda For KentuckyHave an idea that would benefit the state of Kentucky? This is the first site of its kind in Kentucky, designed to collect the best ideas from around the state to solve real-world problems.
This is also a great source for business concepts that need developing for this year's Idea Fair.
Eric Mills, Eclub Founder who works on this fantastic project states, "We’re collecting ideas from all across the state and then the committee will review the ideas and submit the best 2 or 3 to the new (or re-elected) Governor in November."
