We’re sponsoring StartKC’s GrowFEST!
KC IT Professionals supports innovation amongst the local community of technology focused entrepreneurs, so we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of StartKC’s GrowFEST!
What is GrowFEST?
GrowFEST is a social gathering on Thursday, 9/23 @6pm at Liberty Memorial (JC Nichols Auditorium). The aim of the event is to create relationships among growth-oriented entrepreneurs, innovative companies and audiences that cater to growing companies. GrowFEST is the first of its kind in Kansas City where we showcase 9 innovative companies who are launching new & potentially disruptive technologies which stand to revolutionize their industry. Each each company will give a 4-minute pitch, answering questions from the audience, and demonstrating their innovations live throughout the night. At the close of GrowFEST, the audience will choose four of the nine innovating companies to compete at the “Be THE VC” contest during the KC BIZ LIVE expo.
