IXKC: Investivus for the Rest of Us!

Thursday, December 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm • Organized By Kansas City Startup Foundation
8320 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 64114


Investivus for the Rest of Us: Gurus unwrap startup funding secrets

Another week, another story about a high-growth startup raising a huge funding round. From the outside, it seems gift-wrapped just for them — but how’d they do it? And why isn’t your early stage startup on the same "Nice List" with backers?

Join Startland News at NBKC Bank for a conversation with KC investor gurus about connecting to available funding sources. Are local investors sitting on the sidelines? Or have you not looked in the right places for support?

We’ll also be chatting with select founders from Fountain City Fintech’s inaugural cohort to learn more about their experiences within the program and Kansas City’s entrepreneur community.

It’s an Investivus evening of food, drinks, music and networking for all!
