From Techweek to Next Week: Hop on the KCSourceLink Innovation Line

Techweek may be wrapping up here in Kansas City, and it's hard not to be inspired but what we've seen and heard. So for those who found a little momentum from TechweekKC to start or grow your own innovation-led company (and because we just can't resist a good KC Streetcar metaphor), here's your direct line to the KC's innovation-led resources. 

Below, we've mapped the business-building experts in our 240+ Resource Network that help KC innovation-led companies move from inception to exit. Follow the line to find those folks in KC--on both sides of the state line--who are ready to help you test your idea, meet the right people to move it forward, develop your prototype and secure capital.
