Family Partners Support Services LLC competed against 68 other small businesses at the Regnier Venture Creation Challenge (RVCC) held at University of Missouri-Kansas City May 3rd-4th 2018.
In order to compete in the finals for the top four placements each business had to advance in four separate rounds:
- Business Plan Submission
- 5 Minute Elevator Pitch and Venture Expo
- Semifinals (10 minute presentation with five minutes of questions from judges)
- Finals (15 minute presentation with ten minutes of questions from judges)
Our founder, Beth Holder-Brinkley, represented the agency by sharing our mission to serve the Kansas City Metro area to impact the well-being of in-risk children, families, and their communities. She advanced in all four rounds and won 3rd place!
“It was a surreal experience to be able to share our mission with well-known and successful business owners in our community. I know how important our work is and how dedicated each of our team members are. To see others in our community showing us that kind of support and acknowledging the sustainability of Family Partners validated what we already know-we have important work left to do!”
