In Pictures: How KC Celebrated Day 2 of #GEWKC

Day 2 of Global Entrepreneurship Week was bold and fearless. Across the city,entrepreneurs of all types talked about not just about our legendary entrepreneurial past, but also our entrepreneurial future.

From breakfast with Danny O'Neill, founder of the Roasterie to networking with Barnett Helzberg, a household name well beyond our borders, from updates on capital with KCSourceLink to deep dives into innovation with Techstars and Digital Sandbox KC, we explored nearly every facet of KC entrepreneurship and what it will take to make our economy and our entrepreneurs stronger.
