Velocity Lee’s Summit actively partners with and provides connections to our public educational institutions, as well as Kansas City based nonprofit entrepreneurship resource providers.  Course curriculum is being developed to launch a hands on classroom based series of topics that are most relevant to a start-up business.  These community education style courses will be free of charge.  Be on the look out here in 2018 for class schedules to post.   Separate from our upcoming free courses, Velocity has formal and informal partnerships with multiple educational resource providers.  Drop us an e-mail at info@velocityleessummit.rog or check out these links:

At the heart of Velocity Lee’s Summit’s purpose is enabling relevant business connections between people with unique needs and ability.  Lee’s Summit’s business community is filled with successful business owners who are subject matter and industry experts.  More times than not, these people once considered themselves as entrepreneurs at their own starting points.  That same collective spirit endures within these enterprising minds and recognizes the great opportunity to mentor new business owners toward success.  Whether it is choosing a business structure with the guidance of a professional advisor, properly scaling your business to its trajectory of growth, knowing the capacity of your resources and limitations of your market, understanding funding and capital investment options, or simply needing the counsel of an already successful business owner, Velocity empowers material connections.  Our mentors recognize that they too once needed a hand up and are able and willing to give back today to our current generation of Lee’s Summit entrepreneurs.  For more information or to connect with a mentor, please e-mail
