Entrepreneurship and Mentoring in Kansas City with HEMP

by Linh Trieu on March 17th, 2017 in

In Kansas City and across the world, entrepreneurship is vital to a city's identity and its continued development. Without business vision and successes, Kansas City wouldn't be what it is today: a vibrant, growing market for all industries. Entrepreneurship may start with an idea, hard work and passion but growing it into a real business can often be challenging.

Our members have often said, "you don't know what you don't know." It's hard to get "there" (wherever that may be) when you are working blindly. That's why it's so important to work with mentors who do have the experience and expertise. They not only point you in the right direction, but mentors also help you dream bigger than you could have ever imagined.

The desire to see entrepreneurs succeed through mentoring is why HEMP was founded in 1995. With inspiration from Bill Eddy, the leadership of Barnett Helzberg, Jr., and the expertise of its founding mentors, HEMP has grown to be a valuable resource for Kansas City entrepreneurs over the last several decades.

With the HEMP blog, we'll continue sharing your stories, the challenges you face and the positive results of working with experienced mentors. If there's a topic you want to know more about, let us know! Guest bloggers/writers are always welcome-your expertise and expertise is invaluable.
