Waffles Are Just Pancakes with Syrup Traps: Startup Waffles

I stepped into the elevator and instantly smelled bacon. I don’t know about you, but that’s the way I like to start my mornings! Think Big Partners hosted the feeding frenzy, Startup Waffles, as part of One Week KC last Friday and boy, oh boy was it a sticky success! 

The spread was something to behold. There were waffles (of course!), but you could choose between regular and blueberry. But there was also bacon, bananas, coffee and juice. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the scrambled eggs (mixed with cheese, onions, green, red and yellow peppers and bacon!). They were the best I’ve ever tasted.

Just days after iKC, Startup Waffles sparked some residual conversations about the conference (check out our blog to read recaps of the events!). I overheard some mumblings about the Fire Up contest, in which Think Big Partners’ co-founder Herb Sih participated. During Startup Waffles, Herb was spotted busily passing out waffles to everyone as he schmoozed with the crowd. Many entrepreneurs in attendance were deep in conversation. Even the bizperc office dog, Dante, graced us with his presence.

We laughed, we talked and we ate (a lot). A great time was had by all!  We had such a good time, in fact, that we plan to host more Startup Waffles events in the future!  Stay tuned—we’ll be sure to keep you posted on the next time we serve up a delectable breakfast for our favorite people; entrepreneurs!
