A NETWORK OF KANSAS CITY ENTREPRENEURS

Developing entrepreneurial companies through education and networking.

OUR VISION

The Entrepreneurial Exchange is a local organization fostering a network of Kansas City’s top decision-makers and influencers. Originally a chapter of a national organization, local entrepreneurial members chafed at the restrictions placed on us, and resolved to chart our own independent course.

 

The organization's purpose is to bring together fearless leaders of some of the area’s most dynamic companies to explore innovative business solutions to members’ business challenges. Our members benefit from discussing business strategies, receiving feedback from peers, and diagnosing problems within a non-competitive environment of approximately 25 like-minded entrepreneurs.

 

In addition, we hope to help entrepreneurs grow and evolve in the Kansas City market through educational outreach, most notably "Meet The Masters" where up and coming entrepreneurs are provided an intimate setting for conversations with some of the area's most notable and successful business people. Following the example of one of our founding members, Neal Patterson of Cerner, we often discuss what it is that keeps us up at night.
