Entrepreneurism. It’s the same spirit that inspired Lewis and Clark in 1804 to set out in search of a richer future.
Fueled by a spirit of imagination, resolve, and commitment, and inspired by a passion to improve people’s lives, the area is once again a locus for a new age of discovery.
1804 is an entrepreneurship center for anyone in the Louisville and Southern Indiana area who wants to start and grow a business, from the smallest idea all the way up to the Next Big Thing.
Growing something special requires people committed to the same things you are: hard work, taking risks, imaginative thinking, and a single-minded focus on making the world a richer place. That’s exactly who we are. Welcome aboard.
