Access or invest in startup funding in Eastern Kentucky

Bootstrapping a startup is hard.

Lack of capital can stop many Eastern Kentucky entrepreneurs from fully launching and growing a business.

To make sure this doesn’t happen, Shaping Our Appalachian Region has launched two programs to help Eastern Kentucky startups access funding:

  • Early-stage entrepreneurs can apply to share their stories and win funding at the Startup Appalachia Pitch Competition.
  • Late-stage entrepreneurs (high-growth, scalable startups) can apply for seed funding through the Kentucky Angel Fund.

We’re also seeking investors to contribute to the fund.

To apply for funding or contribute funds, just fill out the form. Reply to our email and phone call to schedule a meeting and complete the application requirements.

We’re excited about partnering with you to get more fast-growing startups off the ground in our region.

Apply for the Kentucky Angel Fund through SOAR Innovation.
