Lenexa, Ks. — Local small business funding advisor Accelefund was recently recognized as a KC Chamber Small Business Superstar, a designation that celebrates excellence in Kansas City’s small businesses.

The Small Business Superstar award is part of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s annual Small Business Celebration, which has been a business community mainstay for more than 30 years. The celebration culminates in the highly competitive selection of the KC Chamber’s Top 10 Small Businesses in spring. The highest honor of the awards program, the Small Business of the Year (also known as the Mr. K Award, named for Ewing Kauffman), recognizes one outstanding small business that has shown growth or sustainability of their business with strong employee relations and a record of giving back to the community.

Through a streamlined process and expert guidance, Accelefund helps aspiring business owners to use their pre-tax retirement accounts – such as a 401(k), IRA, 403(b), 457(b) or thrift savings – as startup capital for a new business without paying income taxes on a distribution. Accelefund strives to offer the “big firm” expertise of a trusted retirement specialist while providing personalized one-on-one service every step of the way.

“The Small Business Superstar award is a wonderful recognition of the work that Accelefund does to help aspiring entrepreneurs achieve their goals,” said Accelefund Co-owner and COO Mickey Parker. “We’re extremely grateful to our partners at the Greater KC Chamber for this award program that sheds light on the impact small businesses create in the Kansas City community.”
