A NetWork Kansas Entrepreneurship Community has made a commitment to cultivating an entrepreneurial environment by identifying and developing resources to help local entrepreneurs start or grow businesses. An E-Community has a locally-controlled loan fund to assist entrepreneurs with capital and connectivity to resources to assist entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The Augusta E-Community program, which was created through a Kansas Center for Entrepreneurship tax credit program provided in 2008, is a cooperative effort between Augusta Progress Inc. (API), Augusta Chamber of Commerce, City of Augusta and its citizens. The purpose of the program is to encourage entrepreneurial activity in Augusta and the surrounding growth area, with an emphasis on job creation.
