K-State Research and Extension entrepreneurship programs help youth and young adults develop the skills necessary to successfully start and operate businesses that maintain community vitality and economic growth in Kansas.
First Friday e-Calls
K-State Research and Extension offers an entrepreneurship webinar every first Friday of the month. Our mutual goal is to engage knowledge, wisdom, and relationships of local communities with the research and experimentation of the University to create vital communities.
The purpose of these calls is to increase the local community's knowledge about Experts, Education, and Economic Resources available to help small businesses and entrepreneurs. We also aim to increase the number of transactions between the small business owner/entrepreneur with the Experts, Education, and Economic Resources who can increase the likelihood that they are successful.
If you would like to be on the notification list to participate in upcoming e-Calls, please send your request via e-mail to: email@example.com
