BIG Partners: Think Big Partners and the Kansas City Business Journal Team Up to Host Think Big Kansas City 2011

At Think Big Partners, we are all about collaboration and community.  So as one of our surprises in 2011, we made an announcement last week that excited the entire Kansas City entrepreneurial community.  This coming year’s Premier Conference for Entrepreneurs, Investors and Startups, Think Big Kansas City, will be hosted by Think Big Partners and the Kansas City Business Journal—a collaboration made to strengthen TBKC 2011 as well as the Kansas City startup community.

Last year’s Think Big Kansas City was held in March of 2010 and featured more than fifteen educational sessions, a number of inspirational speakers, and a sold-out crowd of over 425 attendees—from aspiring entrepreneurs, to successful CEOs, to investors.  Last year’s premier conference even featured keynote speaker Chris Gardner, whose real life story of perseverance was the basis of the Hollywood blockbuster, “The Pursuit of Happyness.” 

But we are thinking even bigger in 2011. 
And in order to make the premier conference even more collaborative, beneficial, informative, and inspirational for the Kansas City entrepreneurial community, we have partnered with the Kansas City Business Journal to host Think Big Kansas City on May 24, 2011.  The Journal, with its in-depth weekly coverage of top local business news, is a natural partner to work with Think Big Partners due to their commitment, support and coverage of entrepreneurship and business in the Kansas City community.    
So prepare yourselves, entrepreneurs.  In 2011, TBP and the KC Business Journal are bringing in even more inspirational speakers, business presenters, and networking opportunities to people like YOU!
Here’s your first chance to get involved!  Think Big Partners is currently accepting applications and nominations for speakers and presenters for the Think Big Kansas City 2011 through February 18th 2011.  For more information about the Premier Conference, or to learn more about presenting at the event, please visit or call Think Big Partners at (816) 842-5244.
