Event details

Are you a rural innovator or entrepreneur who has an idea for a new product or business, wants to start or grow your business, or wants to take your product to market? This conference will help you turn your idea into reality.

The event was designed by the Kansas SBDC to cultivate and support those who lack the support of robust research programs that can be found in larger, metropolitan areas. It is hosted by Enterprise PSU at Block22 in Downtown Pittsburg.

Experts from across the state will assist entrepreneurs in all stages of starting and growing a business by covering topics that include patents, trademarks, government contracting, exporting, and raising funds, including grants.

Attendees will get the opportunity to hear from real entrepreneurs about their journey to starting their business and what they overcame to get to where they are now.

Registration: $35

• includes lunch and snacks

The conference is supported by the Kansas Small Business Development Center, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the Kansas Department of Commerce.
