NeXt Stage KC will provide minority and women small business owners a unique opportunity to participate in the award-winning and internationally-recognized Interise StreetWise ‘MBA’™ curriculum. This hands-on curriculum targets second-stage companies ready for growth and consists of advanced business development training, CEO mentoring groups, and access to a national business network to prepare businesses for increased funding and contracting opportunities.

Basic eligibility requirements for NeXt Stage KC include:

  • A minority or woman business owner with 51% or greater ownership of the business
  • $150K to $10MM in annual revenues with demonstrated growth in employment and/or revenue
  • In business for at least 2 years with 2+ employees
