The Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program (HEMP) is still helping Kansas City's entrepreneurs build bigger and better companies. HEMP pairs seasoned business owners with the program's mentees translating into an average growth of 43 percent. In the past 20 years HEMP has helped more than 300 local business owners who in turn have generated close to $750 million dollars in economic activity. On this episode of Smart Companies Radio KC, host Kelly Scanlon visits with Barnett Helzberg Jr., the organization’s founder and Bill Hartnett, chairman of the mentoring committee and president-elect of HEMP.

Hemp will be celebrating in a big way in November with engineer, inventor, and computer programmer Steve Wozniak as the keynote speaker. Wozniak is best known as one of the founders of Apple and inventor of the Apple II computer.
