Build your #GEWKC agenda

The Global Entrepreneurship Week - Kansas City agenda is LIVE — and that means it's time to build your custom agenda of the events that can help you start or grow your business.

This year, we asked YOU what help you needed to start, rebuild and make your business more resilient — and then the GEWKC committee worked with entrepreneurship experts to create events to help your business thrive.

And your ticket to this year's celebration starts with building your agenda of Prime-Time and Community Events. Find out how you can attend this no-cost week to help your business with finances, marketing, finding customers, pivoting and more.
