Top 5 Reasons You Need to Be at iKC 2013

iKC: The Unconference is all about taking great ideas and turning them into action.  So why do you need to be at the unconference on October 3?  

1. You decide the topics you want to talk about

At an "unconference," attendees submit and vote on ideas ahead of time to decide what the day's agenda will look like.Therefore, what the conference looks like is entirely up to you. Submit your ideas here.

2. Increase collision density in Kansas City

Collision density is the level of collisions made between entrepreneurs, innovators, connectors, and investors in a single area. The higher an area's collision density, the more quickly and efficiently innovative development can occur.

3. This isn't a lecture hall. iKC incorporates the "Law of Two Feet."

Unconference Rule #4 says, "if you're not learning or contributing, it is your responsibility to use your own two feet to find someplace where you are." If the session you're in is not a good fit, we encourage you to go find a conversation that makes more sense for you.

4. Get 1-on-1 mentorship from some of KC's most respected entrepreneurs and business leaders

We're lining up some of the city's most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders for the UnMentor Program. Apply for the UnMentor program and you may have an opportunity for a 20-minute session with one of our UnMentors during the conference.
5. The After Party. No, really. 

At 4:15, we'll head to the Alamo Drafthouse for the iKC Closing Session (sponsored by Google Fiber) where you can enjoy free drinks and appetizers. There will also be Open Mic awards where attendees can grab the mic and personally award prizes to a person they think had the most impact on their day.

At 6:30 p.m., you'll be one of the first to see The Tech Trek, a
Google Glass-enabled documentary, and learn all about the capabilities of Google Glass from the eyes of KC entrepreneurs. 

**This screening is free for iKC attendees. General public tickets will become available if space permits.

Claim your iKC ticket today! We will see you October 3!
