Entrepreneurs, Join the One Week Revolution

This one's for you, entrepreneurs.  Are you ready to join the One Week Revolution?

One Week is a nine-day celebration of entrepreneurship.  It's a week's worth of sharing ideas with hundreds of great thinkers.  It's a time to come together, get inspired, learn and connect.  It's all about making Kansas City America's Most Entrepreneurial City...and you're invited.

This week, the One Week KC site launched with an effort to unite entrepreneurs and build the community.  Taking place on June 18-26, 2012, One Week will bring together innovators, thinkers, purveyors of aspiration and creators of what's next to become a part of something bigger in Kansas City.

One Week will be made up of a large number of Kansas City entrepreneur events including iKC, which will take place on June 20 at the H&R Block Corporate Headquarters.  A full list of One Week events will be unleashed soon.

According to Adam Coomes, organizer of One Week, Kansas City will be the place to be June 18-26.  “There are many reasons One Week should happen in KC.  First of all, we have great entrepreneurial events in KC already.  They build the community...but people don’t know about them," he says.  "One Week KC will help others meet the startup community and bring new people out.  We want to boost the startup scene in KC and use this to lead us toward our ultimate goal—to become America’s Most Entrepreneurial City.” 

For now, you can follow One Week on Twitter using the hashtag #1wkc.  More details soon to come.
