A NetWork Kansas E-Community is a partnership that allows a town, a cluster of towns, or an entire county to raise seed money for local entrepreneurs through donations from individuals or businesses within the community.
The E-Community Partnership has grown from six communities in 2007 to fifty-five in 2016. During the first eight years of the E-Community partnership, more than $7.7 million has been loaned to over 285 businesses, leveraging an additional $35.5 million of additional capital (bank loans, owner down payment, resource partner loans, etc.).
