Scott County, Ind.: Community focused on helping businesses thrive

Scott county, indiana
The Mid-America Science Park in Scottsburg, Ind. is one of the most comprehensive science parks in the country.

The Greater Scott County Chamber of Commerce, located on Main Street in Scottsburg, Ind., has worked closely with United Way on a funding program for businesses affected by COVID-19, and with the Indiana Small Business Development Center.

“We are here to help our community thrive, members and nonmembers,” said Kelly Dulaney, executive director of the chamber. The organization organized a “Chamber Chat” every Wednesday at 1 p.m. to inform and update the business community by way of a conference call, featuring business and civic leaders as guest speakers. The chamber has planned a golf scramble for Aug. 5 at the Westwood Golf Course in Scottsburg.

Located 30 miles north of Louisville, Scottsburg is the home of the Mid-America Science Park. With its centers for business incubation and acceleration, training and workforce development, and office space for entrepreneurs and researchers, MASPark is also closely involved with area high schools and colleges.
