How Can KC Become America’s Most Entrepreneurial City?


In places like Silicon Valley and Boulder, Colorado, being innovative and entrepreneurial is a part of regional identity. Kansas City has its own burgeoning entrepreneurial environment; what will it take for the city to build its own reputation and culture?

Adam Arredondo, executive director of the KC Startup Foundation, and Maria Meyers, executive director of the UMKC Innovation Center and founder of SourceLink, offer insight into the exciting environment in KC and engage attendees in generating new ideas about how the city can establish itself as a hotbed for entrepreneurship. The event precedes the closing of the three-week Library exhibit UpStart on Thursday, December 5.

A networking reception is held before the presentation, and attendees can browse the exhibit at the Central Library. The event and exhibit are made possible with support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

  2. If entrepreneurial means selling 50 cent socks for $10 then I suppose KC could be a leader. But the area can be very unfriendly to businesses that don't play the civic insider game.


    When Emma made her pitch for the promotion, she demonstrated her body of knowledge while highlighting her fine points!!!

  4. ^^^ nice!

    The only way these startups survive is with taxpayer dollars, that’s the only way they stay in business, these startups can’t survive on their own.
