The Entrepreneurs Alliance of Kansas City

You might remember us as The Hats Club… we decided it was a good time to rebrand and went with something that’s a little more self-explanatory. The Entrepreneurs Alliance is exactly what it sounds like – a group of entrepreneurs and professionals who enjoy the ideas behind building businesses. Our goal is to connect and educate within the entrepreneurial ecosystem in and around Kansas City.

We’re not just another networking group.

Many of the members own their own businesses. We’ve been through the ups and downs of starting a business, employing people, selling to make sure the doors stay open, dealing with HR issues and more. There are also quite a few key decision makers that work for great companies all over KC.

The goal for the monthly EA meeting is to provide a way for business owners and decision makers to gather to learn something and get to know each other.

Focus on Local Businesses

Often, EA meetings are held at local businesses. It’s a great way to showcase a local business and hear directly from the owner about the excitement and challenges of starting and running a business.


We have social meetings about once a quarter as well as a members only holiday event in December on the Plaza. Some of the locations we’ve gone to for socials in the past include Lifted Spirits, Louie’s Wine Dive, KC Wineworks, Ruins Pub, Coach’s and Top Golf. Often, we get to hear from the owners of these businesses as well.
