Event description

Description

During the Small Business and Entrepreneurial Mayoral Forum, the small business and entrepreneurial community will have the opportunity to tell our future mayor the issues that affect them as small business owners and entrepreneurs - and dig a little deeper into the solutions they propose to make it easier to do business in our city.


We'll be doing this mayoral forum format a little differently - instead of asking candidates to tell us what they think our community needs, we'll be telling them. Startland News, the Kansas City Startup Foundation and Project United Knowledge are asking entrepreneurs, small business owners and startup founders to complete a social media survey outlining the issues that affect them as business owners, ensuring that moderators will ask questions and candidates will present solutions based on the most pressing obstacles facing entrepreneurs and small business owners today.


TAKE THE SURVEY HERE!

Alissia Canady
Phil Glynn

7:10 PM - Entrepreneurial Mayoral Forum


Starting and running a business is hard and the issues that entrepreneurs and small business owners experience in their day-to-day are unique. Here's a mayoral forum that recognizes and celebrates that! We hope to see you at this event!
