The program aimed at boosting entrepreneurship in Shelby County is set to begin this fall.

Rose-Hulman Institute has announced a partnership with the City of Shelbyville and Shelby County. The partnership will begin an economic model to assist in home-grown entrepreneurs, and to educate future entrepreneurs.

City and County officials recently approved $186,000 to support the Innovative Model: Positioning Communities for Transformation (IMPACT 2016). Shelbyville Mayor Tom DeBaun says the city has embraced being a manufacturing community and believes the partnership with Rose-Hulman puts them in the forefront.

Rose-Hulman Institute Interim President Robert Coons says the school has several activities in their academic program that focus on entrepreneurship.

Rose-Hulman‘s Operation Catapult summer campus program will also expose Shelby County seniors to engineering and applied science through project work. The program will begin this fall.
