Bored in Kansas City?

According to StartupDigest's Kansas City curator, Willis Jackson, events for entrepreneurs are decreasing because of the time of year.  Right now, events are in their "slow season".  The holidays are winding down, last minute plans for 2010 have already been announced, and people are starting 2011 fresh by planning events rather than running them.   

But at Think Big Partners, we don't believe in a "slow season!"

We say, bring on the action!  We have some upcoming events to keep entrepreneurs stimulated even in this dreary January weather.  So come on in, warm yourself up, fill your mind (and even your stomach!).  See what we have to offer you this coming week:

bizperc Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Our full-service business incubator and startup accelerator, bizperc, is now open!  We are excited to announce our Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce this Thursday (January 20th) from 4:30 until 6:00 PM.  Join us for snacks, drinks, and of course, great conversation.
LOCATION: bizperc, 1800 Baltimore, Kansas City, MO
Launch & Learn
If you're looking to expand your entrepreneurial horizons, we have the event for you!  Think Big Partners is pleased to announce our first Launch & Learn educational event.  Join Herb Sih, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Think Big Partners, as he presents "Building Management Teams That Attract Investors."  Co-hosted by the Inventors Club of Kansas City, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and investors are invited to learn all about how to select the perfect business team.  This Launch & Learn will take place Tuesday (January 25th) from 11:30 to 1:00. Register today!
LOCATION: bizperc, 1800 Baltimore, Kansas City, MO
PRICE: $45 (lunch provided)

Introducing: The Accelerator Model
Entrepreneurs, are you dying to get funded?  Killing for entrepreneurial advice and suggestions?  Wanting to surround yourself with other visionaries?  Think Big Partners may have your solution. We have taken the fundamentals of the Y-Combinator model and have applied it to our own space.  Now, we are looking for 4-6 entrepreneurs who have what it takes to build a great business.  If you're think you're it, contact Think Big Partners today!
LOCATION: Give us a call or drop by bizperc, 1800 Baltimore, Kansas City, MO

And that's not all!  Be sure to check out our Calendar of Events every week to see what else we have going on.

Entrepreneurs, we know that for you, there is no such thing as a "slow season."  And because of this, we won't have one either.  Afterall, there is no stopping when you're Thinking Big!
