Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:
Leaders


Nancy Zurbuchen is president of Motional Multimedia. She co-founded and has led the Kansas City Council of Women Business Owners for the last eleven years. In her words, “We put women business owners on the map in the local business community and with elected officials and other policy decision-makers. I am proud that for the first time, women business owners are now invited to be ‘at the table’ when policy decisions are being made; this was not true before. Furthermore, the membership criteria required at least $2M in annual revenues; my first assumption was that this rather small group of women business owners would likely already know one another, but I discovered they did not. Now, many of these women have become close personal friends, do business together, and pass along referrals on a regular basis.”

Nancy is also a Small Business Administration (SBA) Region VII "Women in Business Advocate" and winner of the "Women Who Mean Business" Award by The KC Business Journal.
