HARLAN GRAD OPENS FIRST ACCELERATOR BUSINESS
(Harlan) A former Harlan graduate is the first to open up a business in the business accelerator at the entrepreneurial and technology Center in Harlan. Shelby County Develop source Executive Director M.J. Broomfield says Alex Kitner is starting a computer and technology business called Kitnet Computing. Broomfield says the Business Accelerator is a facility for startup businesses.
“It was designed to be a place for new businesses to come and have an opportunity to grow so that the could eventually go out on their own and have their own space.”
The 9,500 square foot facility located near the corner of Highway 59 and Highway 44 is home for Shelby County Develop Source and a new office room called Buslink for people working out of their home that need a place to go for the day.
Broomfield says around 6,000 square feet of space remains for prospective businesses.
