Entrepreneur Ready Community: Certified!

Bastrop, TX is the second community in Texas to receive certification as an Entrepreneur Ready Community.  

A very resilient committee of residents led by Nancy Wood, Director of Main Street pursued certification in spite of the horrible fires that ravaged the area during the time they worked on completing assessments, setting up work committees, engaging the high schools and bringing a significant number of the key players in their community together to complete all the criteria for certification.  Much encouragement was provided by Dave Quinn, Executive Director of the Bastrop Economic Development Corporation.

Plainview, TX was the first community in Texas to receive
certification as an Entrepreneur Ready Community.
