A few words from Steven Chau, one of the entrepreneurs behind Startup Weekend Kansas City!

Startup Weekend Kansas City.
Startup Weekend is a 54 hour startup event that provides the networking, resources, and incentives for individuals and teams to go from idea to launch. Startup Weekend’s motto: Build Community. Start Companies. No Talk. All Action. In conjunction with local facilitators around the world, Startup Weekend is run by two guys out of Seattle, WA. Together, we are our own community of passionate entrepreneurs on a mission to help other entrepreneurs and facilitate innovation. 
The event is open to anyone interested in the local entrepreneurial community, and it puts them in a setting where anything is possible. In the past 2 years, 280+ startups have launched, 9,000+ entrepreneurs have been inspired internationally. Teams have even started to generate revenue during the 54-hour event, and others have even gone on to direct angel and VC investment.  None of these stats take into account the amazing networking, ongoing professional relationships, and amazing experience that happen at every event.
