And today, we're happy to introduce you to Jaime Clark of Trinitè Organiques.

How did your KCSourceLink Resource Partner help you build your business?
Elisa from the Kansas Small Business Development Center (SBDC) was so knowledgeable and encouraging. At one point I was quite overwhelmed and had decided to stop at my feasibility plan and not complete the business plan and Elisa was having none of that. I am so glad she pushed me. Completing my business only increased my knowledge of my industry, customer and financials. Elisa has continued to be available to me since the launch and I tell anyone thinking about starting a business to meet with the SBDC because their staff and educational opportunities are indispensable.
What makes Kansas City America's most entrepreneurial city?
