On Wednesday, Think Big Partners hosted the first event in the Great Minds Think Big series. The fireside chat-style event series is an intimate, inside-look into some of the greatest entrepreneurial minds from the biggest companies both here in Kansas City and across the country. At Great Minds Think Big, two innovative thought leaders with completely different backgrounds will come together to challenge one another’s thought processes and provide insight, inspiration and encouragement to entrepreneurs and startups.
The first Great Minds Think Big event spotlighted Danny O'Neill of The Roasterie and Scott Tibbitts, aerospace entrepreneur. The evening was filled with insight, inspiration and words of wisdom from both entrepreneurs including topics such as:
- The challenges and fears of starting a company
- Moments when they thought too big, too fast
- Why not everyone should be an entrepreneur
- The importance of unique ability
- Their entrepreneurial bucket lists
After discussion with moderator Herb Sih, the floor opened for the audience to ask questions. Following the Q&A, appetizers and beverages were served with an hour of power networking.
