Sourcelink: Matching Entrepreneurs with Resources

Annette Beck on April 28, 2014 Source: e360 Blog

ABeckWhen trying to start a venture, entrepreneurs are taught to start with a problem. Then work towards the solution. Maria Meyers, founder of Sourcelink, took the same approach when she realized an established network of resources to help entrepreneurs start their businesses simply didn't exist.

Sourcelink centralizes information about the resources that entrepreneurs need. Started in 2003 in Kansas City, Mo. as KCSourcelink, the program has spread nationwide to 20 states, becoming an important part of the entrepreneurial ecosystems in many communities.

Sourcelink helps entrepreneurs tap into many different types of assistance, including financial resources, incubators or accelerators and small business development centers.   In this episode of Top of Mind, Thom Ruhe speaks with Maria about why she developed this important clearinghouse, and how the program is helping entrepreneurs in Kansas City and across the country.
