Sadly, despite a great deal of ongoing hype regarding the so-called "Silicon Prairie" . . . There doesn't seem to be too much demand for the constant local seminars touting the startup scene that still hasn't created many jobs.
Take a look at a word from a very smart local keeping track of this stuff:
"Techweek is coming, but they still have FREE tickets to give away. So much for the tech industry in Kansas City . . ."
