The Lake of the Ozarks business community could benefit from a proposal to create a positive environment for start-ups and growing businesses. The City of Camdenton and the Camdenton Area Chamber of Commerce are spearheading a plan to create a business incubator, to be known as “The Hub.” The incubator would utilize advice and mentoring from existing entrepreneurs to help new businesses and those wanting to expand. The Hub services would include everything from help in business planning to actually providing office space until a company can move into their own facility. The incubator would be funded by local government contributions, grants, donations, and corporate sponsorships. Although still in the development stage, it’s expected that The Hub can be officially established within the next 60 days and prepared to start looking for potential clients shortly thereafter.
