The 100 News: The Kentucky 100 is 21st market to launch

The Louisville-based C2 team flies The Kentucky 100 flag after a 22 percent open rate for its inaugural issue.

C2 Strategic Communications joins The 100 Companies growing network

This month, The 100 Companies launched its 21st market – The Kentucky 100 – in partnership with Louisville-based C2 Strategic Communications. The inaugural issue was sent out on March 5 to over 30,000 business and community leaders throughout the state.

Chad Carlton, president of C2 Strategic Communications, hopes the new platform “will offer stories that inform, inspire and intrigue. With a team of former journalists and proud Kentuckians, we are eager to help thought leaders share ideas and information that sparks thinking and action,” said Carlton.

Followers of the new biweekly eNewsletter will enjoy 100-word stories, videos and podcasts that provide a quick digest of the people, news, events and ideas that make Kentucky what it is today. The Kentucky 100 has also launched a website and social media platforms.

“Having met in person with the C2 Strategic team twice, I am extremely impressed with their editorial experience and vision for serving the needs of Kentucky readers and businesses,” said Chris Schroder, founding CEO of The 100 Companies. “Their publishing experience gives The Kentucky 100 a running start toward an extremely successful launch and future. We can’t wait to watch its success.”

Chad Carlton and Chris Schroder toast the launch with Kentucky bourbon in C2’s office.
