When you peel back the thick layer of barbecue and jazz that covers Kansas City, you’ll find a city bustling with entrepreneurs and their startup companies. The entrepreneurship community in Kansas City is strong and quickly growing. So much so that it’s difficult to keep track with who is doing what and where.
Luckily, back in February, a solution to that issue was created: KC Startup Crawl--a one-night tour of Kansas City’s budding companies and entrepreneurial resources. Now Startup Crawl is back in version 2.0! This time around, KC Startup Crawl will take place on Friday June 28, 2013 as a part of 1Week KC.
1Week KC is a six-day entrepreneurial celebration in which entrepreneurs can come together, get inspired, learn and connect, all the while fostering the goal of making Kansas City America’s most entrepreneurial city. 1Week KC will take place June 25-30, 2013.
Think Big is hosting two events during 1Week KC. The first is our involvement in Startup Crawl 2.0! We are joining Google Fiber, The Kauffman Foundation, Kansas City Startup Village and others to once again be a stop on the crawl. Don’t be shy! Stop by Think Big during Startup Crawl to learn about our amazing startups and network with some successful Kansas City entrepreneurs.
KC Startup Crawl 2.0 organizers ask that all attendees sign up for the free event so that they are able to provide sufficient amount of beverages and transportation. And though it may be sad that the crawl ends at 9pm, there is an after party immediately after!
Our second event during 1Week KC is through a partnership with the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and fellow entrepreneurs in Kansas City. It’s no secret that we love waffles, so just as in past years we will be hosting Startup Waffles on Friday, June 28 at our coworking loft!
Cancel your appointments, call the baby sitter, take off work early and join us on Friday, June 28th for KC Startup Crawl 2.0 and Startup Waffles! See you then.
