Capitalizing on the phenomenal growth of new businesses in the metro area, a new advertising and marketing agency opened October 13, Entrepreneur Advertising Group, LLC (EAG).
The company will be led by Paul Weber who has spent over 20 years in advertising and marketing, working closely with small and growing businesses.
HELPING ENTREPRENEURS LIVE THE DREAM
Most entrepreneurs begin their business because of a passion or skill other than marketing, said Weber. We’re here to help them fill the marketing gap by providing the knowledge and skills to succeed, whatever their business life-stage may be.
According to Weber, EAG has partnered with a number of marketing and advertising specialists who demonstrate the entrepreneurial spirit by running their own small businesses and have a deep knowledge of marketing.
GROWING NEED TO SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES
According to recently released statistics, Johnson County, Kansas recorded the largest number of new corporate entities in the States history. The news is equally encouraging on the Missouri side where small businesses make up nearly 98% of all business in the state.
There is a changing business landscape in the area and we believe the time is right to help many of these new entrepreneurs grow, said Weber.
KC PROVIDES ABUNDANT RESOURCES FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Kansas City is a hotbed for fostering entrepreneurial learning and growth. Led by organizations such as Kauffman Foundation and Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program, a new business owner has abundant opportunities for support. According to Weber, EAG is here to help the entrepreneur add to the knowledge theyve gained through these programs and to help them execute marketing strategies at a pace and cost appropriate for a small business.
CHIEF ENTREPRENEUR OFFICER
Weber’s title is Chief Entrepreneur Officer, a moniker that reminds him daily of his need to focus on the unique needs of the small and growing business. Prior to launching EAG, Weber’s career included 9 years at both a large and small advertising agency filling roles in account management and business development. Weber also spent 11 years in a corporate marketing environment where he had the opportunity to work with large numbers of small business owners and franchise groups. Weber is an adjunct instructor at Baker University and spends time speaking to entrepreneurs at area small business incubators and professional groups.
