Verge Pitch Night Kansas City

Tuesday, May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm • Organized By Verge Kansas City
11401 Lamar Ave, Overland Park, KS 66211


What I love about Kansas City is the grit of the entrepreneurs and the energy that you feel emanating from the community. And we’re bringing some of the grittiest, high performers to the Verge KC stage.

Pitch Night, Shark-Tank Style

If you’ve never experienced a Verge pitch, now’s your opportunity to catch 3 of the most exciting companies in the Midwest. Each startup will have just 5 minutes on stage to pitch their startup—no exceptions.

We've got a killer group of presenting entrepreneurs for you this month. Check these high-growth tech companies:

  • Backstitch: a complete platform for better employee communications and engagement.

  • Farmobile: a product used to collect, store, touch, share and sell valuable agronomic and machine data to vetted third parties

  • Athlete Network: a platform where current and former athletes could come together, connect with each other, advance their career and engage in exclusive content.

Come and check out Black & Veatch’s Rodman Innovation Pavilion May 23rd at 5:30 for Verge Pitch Night.
