U.S.SourceLink Helps Connect the Dots

At the recent U.S.SourceLink national conference, U.S.SourceLink, our mothership, debuted our very own Kauffman Sketchbook.

The "Connect the Dots" sketchbook features U.S.SourceLink founder Maria Meyers talking about how U.S.SourceLink connects the dots for all different kinds of entrepreneurs, from innovation-led to microenterprise, from main street to second stage. 

U.S.SourceLink does this across the country--from Alaska to Florida, Minnesota to Louisiana. The idea: create a network of on-the-ground resources to better help entrepreneurs find the help they need to start and grow businesses.
