Next week is a big week for entrepreneurs and wannabee entrepreneurs in Kansas City. Monday kicks off what is being called One Week KC…nine days of meet-ups, conferences, idea exchanges, speakers, parties and workshops to educate, inspire, encourage and celebrate entrepreneurship.
It’s all part of Kansas City’s quest to become America’s Most Entrepreneurial City. You’ve heard that expression before, but whatever happened to that? You may remember it was one of the Big 5 Ideas announced by the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce last fall. Did it simply just fade away?
The man leading the Chamber’s Making Kansas City “America’s Most Entrepreneurial City” initiative is Peter de Silva, CEO of UMB Bank, who sat down with Nick Haines to give a progress report.
