MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY POWER BROKER DIANA KANDER TEDxKC TALK!!!



Diana Kander is a senior fellow at the Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and a best-selling author. She's also the brains behind at least 3 Kansas City political dynasties that we can think of off the top of our head.

While the hype about "millennials" and the creative class is hard to prove . . . Diana Kander would certainly be the prime example of the very best of local young people. However, she drives a car and commutes a lot from Columbia, MO where she lives with her hubby MO Secretary of State Jason Kander.

Anyhoo . . .

TAKE A LOOK AT THE DIANA KANDER BIZ TALK FEATURED @ THE RECENT TEXxKC TECH BIZ CONFERENCE!!!

Check it:

Our Approach to Innovation Is Dead Wrong | Diana Kander | TEDxKC

The clip on the Internets so that online denizens don't have to pay the hefty fee @ the door:



Youtube description:

"In the past decade, we've seen an explosion in the number of business incubators, startup accelerators and entrepreneurial training programs. But Kander argues all of these programs share an enormous fatal flaw. Diana's talk challenges our thinking about entrepreneurship and presents a new approach for startups and corporations alike.

"Diana Kander entered America as an eight-year old refugee of the Soviet Union. By the time she was an American citizen, she had perfected her skills as a capitalist – selling flea market goods to grade school classmates at a markup.

Today, Kander is a successful entrepreneur, having founded and sold a number of ventures, and is a senior fellow at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the largest nonprofit in the world dedicated to entrepreneurship and education. A sought-out public speaker and consultant, Kander has advised startup founders and Fortune 500 executives on her methodology for launching customer-focused products and services. She is the author of New York Times bestseller “All In Startup,” a business novel published by Wiley in 2014. The book is a "page turner" that helps entrepreneurs build products and services they know customers will buy."

Who is Beth and why would she be upset with anyone?

What is a Sr. Fellow at a non-profit? Political appointment?

She has never shared her views on unsolicited bulk email. But I like her legs.

3:15 - thanks for covering for me!

She wrote a lot of very very nasty shit about her husband's opponent on the old blog GONE MILD. Filthy, hateful shit. She will never be forgiven even if she was not a total bullshitter now.

There are a great number of people in KC who will cut her husband slack but cannot stand that bitch.

Always a pleasure.

Some will say we’re homogenizing
Ouch, my balls; these jeans are tight
I just learned how to knit a sweater
No work on Monday, let’s party all night
It’s survival thanks to Mommy
Then you can live to play all day
City Kansas streets can be so pretty
When we move in and push the natives away
In my new city, like, yaaaaaah.
In my new city, oh yaaaaaaah
I wasn’t born here in this city
I’m from a state with a lot of malls
My beard grows, I’m so urban and gritty
Until I catch a beating when night falls
I came from out on that horizon
To gentrify the CK sky
I know if Mommy keeps on paying
Then I can stay for another night
In my new city, like, yahhhh
In my new city

@404; quality of Intel shared with Tony is dropping daily. Soon, he will be posting sudoku puzzles.

Anything to keep hits up.

Tony jacks off to her because she looks like a boy.

That n word guy, the ridiculous Klansman polarbear are real boring and take up a lot of time just scrolling past their old rants.
Makes this blog a drag. Was pretty good before they started posting.

Please give Toni Bones a job.

4:53 - who is Beth?

Boris said...

She is a sleeper KGB agent. Be aware and be very afraid.

Polar Bear said...

LMFAO. One has to wonder what constitutes a "political dynasty" in Tony's small brain.

Obviously the threshold is very, very low.

Brother could you spare a couple of pair of Diane's panties for a lonely Bear ? I know she must have given you several pair. Oh, and not the drenched ones that you stuff under the pillow when mom ventures into the Taco Cave.

Best selling author ? Where ? Higginsville.

Polar Bear said...

Hey Tuluride , Turduride or whatever the fuck you call yourself.

Know that it makes the Bears day knowing he gets under your skin. Thanks for the shout out.

Ass clown.

7:20 PM I believe a shadowy Oligarch purchased enough electronic editions of the "book" to skew the best seller rankings for several minutes during a Friday evening.

Sweet Jesus, you'd think a "cult of personality" would have a better one.

I think he is funnier that shit Bear. Your game is beyond predictable.

OK.....now the F-Bombs.

Dang, the predictability is boring.

TEDdoesn'tLiveHereAntymore said...

Hmm....open your presentation with a TOTALLY irrelevant story about you being a VICTIM (not really! he ran off) as a means to elicit sympathy for your wacko theories on entrepreneurship.

Taekwondo, Mike Tyson, marshmallows and kindergarteners....ahh, yes, this is deep thinking from a pseudo-intellectual.

TEDxKC = after listening to this presentation, TED left town in disgust, thus "TEDxKC"

I know a trans woman who was raped 4 times in the ass before she was 19

I will be honest--she makes me sad. It is almost embarrassing to see someone promote themselves like this--and yes, I do like her husband a lot.

I would click on this if Diana had ever actually done anything. She hasn't. She is another person who wears the label of entrepreneur but only tells others what they should be doing. In my experience that kind of entrepreneurship only comes from people who are not actually worried about paying their bills.

The way she has climbed up the social ladder and gained access to the movers and shakers is impressive, and her husbands accomplishments are admirable, but she has nothing to teach.
