"Intentional Collisions" - Actionable Data

Tuesday, February 28 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm • Organized By Sprint Accelerator
Large Space, Flr 2, 210 W 19th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108

About

It's time for another session of Intentional Collisions at the Sprint Accelerator and this time we'll be diving into Actionable Data

Intentional Collisions is an ongoing program, where Sprint Accelerator organizes a themed & condensed coworking day; bringing together people interested in similar subjects and/or working to solve common challenges.  When we share knowledge and collaborate, we can problem solve together more rapidly! 

In our world, we’re surrounded by data. However, as companies and entrepreneurs with access to loads of data, are we efficiently capturing and utilizing this information? It’s time to cut through the noise and make data work for us! 

Join us for the conversation!


The event runs from 2 PM to 6 PM, with a guided talk led by our partner Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), relating to specific challenges in Actionable Data.  We’ll then break out into sub-conversations and end it with a happy hour to seal the deal!

Dairy Farmers of America has generously offered to provide drinks and snacks for those in attendance, so be sure to thank them!  Additionally, they will lead a discussion and panel around the topic of Actionable Data.

AGENDA:
2:30 - 2:45       Check-in
2:45 - 3:20       DFA - How to Turn Data into Action
3:20 - 3:30       Breakout Topics Pitched by Leaders
3:30 - 4:15       Breakouts (2-3 simultaneously)
4:15 - 4:30       Share Out (15 mins)
4:30 - 6:00       Happy Hour & Networking
