Startland News LIVE

December 11, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm CST


Join Startland News for an evening of networking and news engagement as our reporting team takes you deeper into three stories of growth, Kansas City pride, and entrepreneurial excellence.

Featured topics and guests on Dec. 11 include:

• Entrepreneurs-turned-influencers-turned-reality TV competitors Stephen Lomas and Chase Higgins join Startland News to discuss their journey from moving Kansas Citians with a massive truck to moving Netflix viewers on “Squid Game: The Challenge.”

• Author, tech entrepreneur, and father JQ Sirls bring his best pitch — and the AI-infused bedtime stories behind it — to Startland News LIVE. Check out a live demonstration of Storytailor’s technology, which allows parents and kids to craft AI-powered tales in real-time.

• Jenny Frenzel and Karin Chang at the Urban Education Research Center spent the summer digging into the impact of Startland News’ nonprofit newsroom. Hear from the experts themselves about what they discovered — and what small business owners had to say.

This showing of Startland News LIVE is made possible by support from Bank of America.
