Travelling Office Hours with Jenny Nepper, Network Builder

Small Biz Questions? Get Answers at KCSourceLink's June Traveling Office Hours

KCSourceLink Traveling Office HoursSchool may be winding down, but the learning about running a business never takes a vacation. Join Network Builder Jenny Miller at locations around the KC metro this June to get your learn on and to get your business questions answered. 

Yes, Jenny is headed to your neighborhood for our June installment of Traveling Office Hours. Throughout the summer (and beyond), Jenny will take deep knowledge of Kansas City’s business resources to neighborhoods throughout the KC metro, all to better serve business owners, right where you live and work.

Every Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m., Jenny will sit down with you, face to face, and answer your burning small business questions from different Resource Partner locations—and she comes equipped with the small business knowledge and connections to help you start and grow your business. 

Ask her how to find funding for your business or where you can get help writing a business plan. You can ask her about coworking, networking, workforce development. She can tell you what licenses your business needs in your community and she knows all the programs—free and fee—that can help your business grow.

Don't know what to ask? She can help you with that, too, making sure you leave with an action plan and a shortlist of experts who are ready to help.

The summer roadshow kick starts at the Independence Regional Ennovation Center on Tuesday, June 7. We’ll hold our office hours from 1-4 p.m., no appointments necessary. 

Jenny will meet with you, assess your needs and make referrals to the appropriate resources in the KCSourceLink network, a teeming garden of 240+ nonprofit, government and educational organizations whose services are typically low or no cost.

And of course, your face-to-face with Jenny is free.

You’ll leave your meeting with Jenny 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.
