On Friday, October 5 United States Senator Chris Coons, Rope It Golf owners Louis Girifalco and Marc Reda, representatives from the Delaware Economic Development Office, Dover Federal Credit Union, and LPGA golf pro Becky Dengler gathered at Kent-Sussex Industries (KSI) in Milford to discuss how aspiring entrepreneurs can take advantage of programs designed to get small businesses up and running.

Rope It Golf is a local grassroots online start-up that produces Rope It, a golf ball on a rope that is designed to help golfers improve their score.  Girifalco and Reda are 25-year-old entrepreneurs and University of Delaware graduates who took advantage of federal Small Business Administration loans, the State Small Business Credit Initiative Loan Program and a loan from Dover Federal Credit Union.  Rope It is being manufactured at KSI, a not-for-profit agency providing vocational training and employment services to individuals with disabilities throughout Kent and Sussex Counties

This year Kent-Sussex Industries, Inc. (KSI) is celebrating 50 years of providing employment to individuals with disabilities at their Milford location. With approximately 300 individuals being employed by, or with the help of, KSI there is a myriad of employment opportunities based on the needs of each business and the ability of each person.  During 2011 KSI provided approximately 113,500 trips for disabled employees across the State of Delaware.

“We want everyone to know what we are doing here at KSI,” commented Jayson Crouch, Vice President of KSI. “Being a United States Senator it is important for Senator Coons to understand the needs of the population we serve.”
