Travelling Office Hours with Jenny Nepper, Network Builder

Even the cold weather won’t stop us from helping your find the answers and small business resources you need to grow your business.

This winter, KCSourceLink continues our tour of KC’s small businesses resources. Throughout February (and beyond), we’re bringing our office to your neighborhood to better serve entrepreneurs and business owners in all parts of the Kansas City metro area.

Every Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m., our Network Builder Jenny Miller offices out of different locations—and she comes prepped with the small business knowledge and connections to help you start and grow your business. 

It’ll be like having 240+ small business mentors ready to help you clear that next hurdle, but less noisy.

The winter roadshow heads to Heartland Black Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Feb. 2. We’ll hold our office hours from 1-4 p.m., no appointments necessary. Have a burning question? Bring it. Have a business resolution that needs help getting kick started? We can help. 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, a bevy of 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.
