KCSourceLink Celebrates 15 Years of Connecting Entrepreneurs, Resource Partners
We’re 15 years old!
Without our Resource Partners, we couldn't connect business owners with the knowledge and tools to start and grow their businesses. When we first started KCSourceLink, we only had a handful of Resource Partners listed on the Resource Navigator
. Now, more than 240 qualified Resource Partners across the entire Kansas City metro serve our entrepreneurial community.
To show our appreciation and love, we celebrated our big day in a big way. We asked the entrepreneurial community to nominate their All-Stars who stand out and recognized them at a tailgate party before the Royals game.
We crowned (literally) 16 Resource Partner All-Stars who have shown exceptional service, dedication and support to Kansas City’s entrepreneurs.
Of course, we didn’t stop there. We asked Molly Balloons to party with us, and she brought her balloon crowns, selfie station and plenty of balloon-hat couture. After we recognized our All-Stars, Mayor Sly James proclaimed June 18, 2018, as KCSourceLink Entrepreneurship Day.
Here are a few of the highlights from our anniversary celebration. View all of the photos on our E-Day at the K Tailgate Party Facebook album.
