Building the Kansas City Spirit with Entrepreneurship

We've received word of a great event coming through from our friends at the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Read on...
When thinking of Kansas City entrepreneurs the Norman Rockwell painting, commissioned by Joyce Hall, titled “The Kansas City Spirit” comes to mind. The iconic painting tells the story of Kansas Citians re-building the entire city after the flood in 1951. Ever since then, Kansas City has been known to be a city of determined, hard working individuals.
Kansas City is on a quest to become America’s most entrepreneurial city. Built by hometown entrepreneurs such as Ewing Kauffman, Joyce Hall, the Bloch brothers and Neal Patterson, there’s no doubt “The Kansas City Spirit” is still strong. We’re making headway but there’s still a lot to do to achieve our goal.
Join The Chamber for our next Big Idea Exchange on The Chamber’s Big 5 Entrepreneurship Initiative. You and our esteemed panel have the opportunity to give your input on why this is important to Kansas City, our economy and our region. What resources do local entrepreneurs still need? How does Kansas City attract and retain talent? What does “America’s most entrepreneurial city” look like?
