The non-profit LeXenomics Group was founded in 2010 by Lexington, Kentucky native Eric Marr - and exists specifically to help people more easily and successfully pursue their dreams.
In an economy with 60-80% of Americans dispassionate about their careers… in an economy where income growth has stagnated for 1-2 generations… we obviously need a new way.
And that way fundamentally revolves around about bringing out each person’s individual talents to the max, not only yielding personal fulfillment, but likewise creating a more successful and prosperous outward economy for all.
We achieve our goals with a three-pronged approach:
- We connect smart, driven people who haven’t yet connected
- We raise the level of consciousness inside and outside of Lexington, branding (educating) citizens about opportunities and cool, new developments happening right here in Central Kentucky
- We raise money and reinvest that money into local, new, innovative pursuits. Local entrepreneurs, innovators, artists, ideators and risk takers.
Besides RunTheBluegrass, our other projects include:
Our grant-giving arm for dreamers, pursuers and makers
