Please join KCSourceLink and the Kauffman Foundation, in collaboration the Greater Kansas City Chamber's Face2Face, as we attempt to break a world record for speed networking!
How do we break the world record?
We need 400 people participating in a speed networking event in a single location. Each person must meet 25 other people for 3 minute conversations.

Who should participate?
Business owners, aspiring business owners, business resource organizations, service providers and anyone with an interest in helping grow small business in the Kansas City region.

What happens during the event?
You'll be given a seat assignment when you check-in. Our moderator will give everyone instructions before the speed networking begins. You'll have 1.5 minutes to share your story. Your partner will have 1.5 minutes to share his/her story. You'll exchange business cards. When 3 minutes are up, you'll move to the next table and repeat until you've met 25 new people.
