El Dorado was selected as a 2015 Entrepreneurship (E-) Community and has been awarded $75,000 in tax credits, enabling the El Dorado E-Community to raise $100,000 to be loaned to local businesses. 

These funds will then be available beginning in January 2016 to be awarded to local businesses as matching loans. In addition to the establishment of the E-Community loan fund, El Dorado E-Community will also complete a series of strategic activities during 2016 designed to enhance the effectiveness of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in order to drive long-term economic growth.
