An outstanding Kansas Katalyst nominee is described as an entrepreneur or business owner who inspires others to do something faster, better and with a larger result; someone who sparks inspiration.
“I think problems can be solved by small entrepreneurs who provide value to the community in creative ways,” said Mark Queen, co-founder of the Kansas Katalyst award and strategic business coach. “They take enormous risks with their personal wealth and create job opportunities.
