mobank Plays Role in Kauffman Foundation's Global Entrepreneurship Week

Monday November 18, 2013

It’s Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) in Kansas City, from Nov. 13 to 24. The Kauffman Foundation launched GEW in 2008. It is the world's largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. It’s one week, 130 countries and 115,000 events — more than 60 of those happening in Kansas City.

Listen to Julie Nelson Meers' Interview here.

Our own Julie Nelson Meers, senior vice president, will be one of the presenters during the week. Her presentation is called "Build a Banking Relationship that Works." In this presentation, Julie will share insights about what banks look for and how small business owners can put their best foot forward.

She'll review the difference between SBA and conventional loans and talk about the application process. She'll explain when a business might qualify for a loan, and when it’s better suited for other options. And she'll discuss a couple of those options when bank financing isn't an option.

In the spring and fall, mobank offers a six-week small business course, called BusinessEdge, to help small business owners learn how to get more out of their business. This presentation was inspired by that program.

mobank's area of focus is serving entrepreneurs and small businesses. "This is one of the most exciting times for entrepreneurship in Kansas City," said Meers. "I've been in this business for more than 20 years, and I've never seen a time with as much opportunity for entrepreneurs; which is why Global Entrepreneurship Week is so vibrant in Kansas City."

The event is free, and coffee and pastries are provided.

Event details 8:30 to 10 a.m. – Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 The Bean Hangar at The Roasterie
