Travelling Office Hours with Jenny Nepper, Network Builder

Catch KCSourceLink at Our Traveling Office Hours This January

Travelling Office Hours with Jenny Nepper, Network Builder

KCSourceLink is continuing our road show in 2016, taking our office into your neighborhood to better serve entrepreneurs and business owners in all parts of the Kansas City metro area.

In January and throughout 2016, our Network Builder Jenny Miller will office out of different locations every Tuesday afternoon—and she comes equipped with the small business knowledge and connections to help you start and grow your business. 

It’ll be like having a small business army of 240+ service providers in your back pocket, but less crowded. 

The winter roadshow heads to Miami County Economic Development Corporation on Jan. 5. We’ll hold our office hours from 1-4 p.m., with no appointments necessary. Have a question? Bring it. Have a business resolution. Let us help you get that started. Don’t know what questions you should even be asking? We can help with that, too.

Jenny will meet with you, assess your needs and make referrals to the appropriate resources in the KCSourceLink network, some 240+ nonprofit, government and educational organizations whose services are typically low or no cost. And of course, your meet-and-greet with Jenny is free.

You’ll leave our face-to-face equipped with an action plan that will help you solve your business challenges whether you’re stumped about business plans, marketing or the right funding to pursue for your startup.

Can’t wait until we tour your neighborhood? Don’t. Give us a call anytime at 816.235.6500 or visit our website, We’re also quite familiar with The Powers of Email: reach out at
