KCSourceLink helps lead the effort to make Kansas City America’s most entrepreneurial city. That means we connect entrepreneurs to resources, coaches, funding, and education and help coordinate great events for entrepreneurs, like Global Entrepreneurship Week. We also help monitor Kansas City's entrepreneurial ecosystem: we measure outcomes, work with our Resource Partners to fill gaps in resources and bring national resources to the community through grants such as the i6 Challenge and the University Center grants from the Department of Commerce EDA.
How do we accomplish this?
