How Economic Freedom is Reinventing Kentucky’s Industrial Sectors: Opinion – Tips & Results

If you ask most people in business or finance, they will tell you that great innovation and economic opportunity are confined to the shores. That’s a remarkably short-sighted view, and one that far short-sells heartland America — and Kentucky.

I believe that Kentucky is an excellent place for entrepreneurs and executives looking to start or grow their businesses, and it could be even better. The Commonwealth offers tremendous benefits for companies locating here. My strong belief in Kentucky is demonstrated by the opening of Rubicon’s new headquarters in Lexington City Center, and we hope other organizations will follow suit.

Many organizations have already done this. Sprocket recently announced an innovation center in Paducah, Novelis announced a $365 million recycling center in Guthrie, and overall, Kentucky saw a 21% increase in startups last year with 52,774 startups.
