During GEW

Recently, Blue Springs and Lee’s Summit noted substantial growth in their retail sector due to their efforts to connect local entrepreneurs and small businesses to the local resources available to assist them.

As part of this initiative, GrowBlueSprings and BoostLeesSummit will host a Regional Retail PitchON! this fall on November 19th,  with surrounding communities at the Hilton Garden Inn in Independence, Missouri.  Other communities participating include Oak Grove (MO), Grain Valley (MO), and Independence (MO).

During the event, five entrepreneurs from each community will be given the chance to present their business to investors. Three will be given the chance to present to the public. Events like this one are specifically designed to introduce entrepreneurs to mentors, investors, and members of the community that are interested in helping them start and grow their business.  This event is structured to increase entrepreneurial activity and develop a self-sustaining ecosystem favorable to long-term entrepreneurial growth.
