IXKC: Emerging From Failure

Tuesday, July 31 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm • Organized By Kansas City Startup Foundation
210 West 19 Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108


Startups rarely find an easy or immediate path to success. For some, the end comes before their dreams are fully realized — but not always before they make a splash or, just maybe, set the stage for an even greater idea in their next venture.

In the latest edition of Startland News’ Innovation Exchange — sponsored by Rivet and hosted at Sprint Accelerator — we'll hear candid stories of failure directly from startup innovators who faced defeat and emerged on the other side.

Join us for an evening of food, drinks, music, networking, and lessons from a less-discussed reality of startup life.
