Barnett Helzberg On Mentoring Entrepreneurs

Jun 26, 2012

Barnett Helzberg, Jr. had a mentor. His name was Ewing Kauffman, the one-time owner of the Kansas City Royals.

That relationship was so successful, that Barnett Helzberg got an idea for a business mentoring program that is now in its 17th year -- the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program. The idea is to pass on the experiences of successful businessmen and those who are at pivotal points in their careers.

In the second portion of Wednesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske welcomes Helzberg to talk about a new book he's written on the program, Entrepreneurs and Mentors Equals Success.

Helzberg Jr. and Kansas City Public Library Director Crosby Kemper III hold a public conversation with some of the local entrepreneurs profiled in Helzberg’s new book Thursday evening at 6:30 at the Library's Central branch, 14 W. 10th Street, Kansas City, Mo.
