Microenterprise Program Trainer
740-592-3854 ext. 120
Kyle Verge joined the ACEnet staff in August of 2018 as a Microenterprise Program Trainer. Through a grant from the Small Business Administration, he coordinates and teaches workshops encouraging entrepreneurship and small business development within the regional community. Additionally, he offers one-on-one technical assistance, re-entry outreach and assistance, and Food Entrepreneurship Workshops and Webinars.
After spending the last seven years in the local community working in drug rehabilitation, social enterprise management, and education, Kyle knows Ohio and the local community is replete with spirit, resourcefulness, beauty, and intelligence. It is these qualities he has learned to respect, and it is these qualities that inform and build our economic networks by bringing together artisans and makers, retailers, hospitality workers, and recreation enthusiasts.
Through no fault of his own, Kyle was born and raised in Michigan; he has lived and worked on both coasts of the United States, but is happy to have found a home, a wife, and a cat in Athens, Ohio. He earned a Master’s Degree in English Language and Literature from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.
