GrowFEST to Showcase Nine Innovative Companies

Written by Allison Way, writer and videographer for Think Big Partners and bizperc, two of Kansas City's newest entrepreneurial resources. 

This Thursday, September 23rd, entrepreneurs, innovators, and small business owners are invited to attend GrowFEST, a social gathering aimed at creating relationships among growth-oriented entrepreneurs, innovating companies, and audiences that cater to growth-minded businesses. GrowFEST will feature nine innovating companies who are in the process of launching new and interesting technologies. This social gathering will allow each company to give a four-minute pitch about their new product. After each pitch, the audience is encouraged to ask questions and participate in demonstrations throughout the evening. Additionally, beer and hors d'oeuvres will be provided so that like-minded individuals can chat, eat and network in a collaborative community. When GrowFEST comes to an end, the audience will choose four of the nine innovating companies to compete at the "Be THE VC" contest which takes place during the KC BIZ LIVE Expo.

Jason Opat—Intergrated Media Group—
