It's BAAACK! Startup Weekend Kansas City 2012 at Kauffman Foundation

For a few years now we've been promoting, attending, hosting and even sponsoring Startup Weekend Kansas City.  It's a 54-hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing and market validation followed by a finale of presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders.  And we could not be more excited that it's back in Kansas City November 16-18, 2012 at the Kauffman Foundation.

Entrepreneurs, hackers, coders, designers, marketers and creatives are invited to participate in Startup Weekend Kansas City.  But when it comes down to it, you're probably wondering...what's in it for YOU?

1.  New partners and connections
Entrepreneurs.  Developers.  Designers.  Marketers.  Product managers.  Startup enthusiasts.  Tech guys.  They’re all at Startup Weekend and they’re all anxious to meet you!  Startup Weekend not only provides you with the opportunity to make your startup dream come true, but it also gives you the networking opportunity that you need in order to grow your rolodex of experts and learn what others have to offer. 

2.  New ideas
You may be a hard worker, but you don't have quite the right ideas to launch a business of your own.  That's what Startup Weekend is for!  Startup Weekend will open your mind to new ideas out in the world and put you on the cutting-edge of entrepreneurship in Kansas City 

3.  New strategies
Startup Weekend is more than just a chance to launch a business—it’s a chance to expand your mind!  Startup Weekends are all about learning through the act of creating.  This event allows you to step outside of your comfort zone and work on a new platform, learn a new program, or just try something different.

4.  New perspectives
Local tech and startup leaders participate in Startup Weekends as mentors and judges. Get some one-on-one time and gain new, high-level perspectives with the movers and shakers in Kansas City at this event!

5.  A new startup!
