El Torreon KC, Inc. is a business partnership and mentoring program located in the historic Midtown district of Kansas City. Our goal is to equip entrepreneurs and business owners to become excellent in their sphere of influence, while providing a place of commerce and community-based business services to the Midtown and Union Hill neighborhoods.
the 3 ventures
As Kansas City continues to develop entrepreneurs, there is a growing need for a community-based landing place for business owners to connect. El Torreon KC, Inc. offers rental desks and meeting spaces for entrepreneurs and small businesses, while at the same time, offers training in marketing, branding, business finance, and workflow productivity. Our network of mentors are committed to working with each entrepreneur renting from El Torreon, helping them to develop further and reach their personal best. We are also committed to walking with each entrepreneur, teaching him or her how to develop others who are a few years younger than they are, and helping pair these businesses owners up with young adults (high school and university age) who are interested in their same field of industry. In doing so, we are helping leaders develop other young leaders.
During the weekday, evenings and weekends, we offer a rental space for various sizes of personal and corporate events. Spaces range in size and function in order to accommodate a wide variety of needs, including weddings, business seminars, dances, music events, art showings, corporate gatherings, bar mitzvahs, and receptions. We hire high school and college students to serve at events, while teaching them work ethic and instilling in them the values of servant leadership. This opens up the door for us to not only pay them a generous wage, but also to speak into their lives as mentors and employers.
Training and Resources Hub
In the fall of 2017, we are launching an online resource hub to not only train our in-house businesses, but also to provide open-air resources for entrepreneurs who office off-site. These resources will include:
· Bi-weekly blog / newsletter for entrepreneurs
· Monthly training seminars from experienced business owners
· Monthly training on how to mentor young adults
· Quarterly business seminars (open to the public)
El Torreon KC, Inc. operates as an independent business entity, however, we share and uphold the values established both by the shareholders and the governing advisory board. Our goal is to see positive moral and economic transformation in the Midtown area by connecting with other local businesses, developing leaders, and mentoring the next generation. We highly esteem integrity, concentration, perseverance, respect, obedience, self-control, humility, and creating an indomitable spirit in our young leaders. We highly emphasise family values, honoring relationships, and placing value on customers and clientele. Whether this is expressed during a mentorship moment, an event we are hosting, or a community service project we are a part of, we desire to represent a positive source of change to our city.
