Trade Group from India Visits KC

Visitors from India got a first hand look at entrepreneurship in Kansas City last month, hosted by the Small Business and Technology Development Center at UMKC. The group came to Kansas City at the invitation of the U.S. State Department to explore entrepreneurship in the U.S.  This was their only stop in the United States to talk about small business ownership and share entrepreneurial ideas. 

The morning focused on a roundtable discussion matching Kansas City area business owners and service providers and then a ‘speed networking’ format to share one-on-one. In the afternoon, the group heard more about the UMKC Innovation Center and its various programs.

This is the fifth time this year that the UMKC SBTDC has hosted an international delegation. All told, 44 countries have visited in the last 18 months.
