The Enterprise Center in Johnson County has a jammed packed schedule of over 50 workshops for Kansas City entrepreneurs in 2017.
“We are lucky to have the support of dozens of volunteer service providers who take time away from their own jobs and businesses to share their expertise with entrepreneurs,” ECJC vice president of communications and outreach Melissa Roberts said in a release. “In 2017, entrepreneurs will be able to access Kansas City’s most knowledgeable legal, sales, finance and marketing professionals and receive critical advice needed to grow their ventures through these workshops.”
The workshops will cover a variety of topics such as marketing, business foundation, capital, sales, budgeting and venture capital.
Thanks to a new partnership with Village Square Coworking Studio, ECJC will bring its Foundation Series to the Kansas City Startup Village this year. In addition, ECJC will continue its partnerships with the Women’s Business Center and Sprint Accelerator.
ECJC is a nonprofit organization that aims to connect entrepreneurs to the resources they need to stimulate job creation in Johnson County. ECJC is also home to the Mid-America Angels Investment Network, the Women’s Capital Connection and the Growth Mentoring Service.
