Corporate Engagement: Essential for the Startup Ecosystem

In order for Kansas City to be become "America's Most Entrepreneurial City", we must engage top area corporations.  Corporations need startups and startups need corporations.  Linking the innovative spirits, strategies and technologies of entrepreneurs with the knowledge, expertise and commercialization of corporations allows the whole ecosystem to thrive.  At Sprint Accelerator, we're creating a cultural exchange between entrepreneurs and corporate leaders to break down barriers to communication, innovation and overall progress. 

Join us at the Sprint Accelerator during GEW to hear directly from key stakeholders from these essential communities (corporate and entrepreneurial).  You may even learn a bit more about what we've been up to and what's in store for Spring 2017!  There are a lot of exciting efforts taking place with the goal of engaging corporations with the startup ecosystem.  So come to mingle with old friends and brand new resources, for a much stronger KC moving forward together!
