  • About

    Sustainable Business Ventures (SBV) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is a social enterprise that provides technical assistance, training, and support entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs/individuals wanting to start a business, and small business owners. SBV encourages the development of social entrepreneurs and social enterprises. A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being - this may include maximizing social impact rather than profits for external shareholders. SBV encourages a business model that focuses on Triple bottom line (TBL) which is an accounting framework with three parts: social, environmental (or ecological) and financial. The TBL framework evaluates their performance in a broader perspective to create greater business value.

    In late 2015, SBV was awarded a grant from the Delta Dental foundation to conduct an Entrepreneurial Climate Study is a study that will be scientifically designed to gauge the entrepreneurial environment in Kentucky as viewed by active entrepreneurs. The goal of the study is to determine the past awareness and perceived effectiveness of programs designed to help the entrepreneur and what changes need to be made to provide better assistance to the entrepreneur. The Kentucky Entrepreneur Network has been established to connect entrepreneurs to each other, mentors, investors, technical service providers, and education resources, professional trainers and consultants to start and grow businesses.
