The making of Kansas City as America’s Most Entrepreneurial City began as an initiative of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. The idea was one of the Chamber’s Big 5 initiatives to improve the economic performance and the quality of life in greater Kansas City. I was asked to lead this effort on behalf of the Chamber.
What started as an initiative, became a movement. A movement to remake a great American city around budding entrepreneurs. To demonstrate to the rest of the country that innovation does not just occur in Silicon Valley, Boston or Austin. It happens right in the heart of America. Join me as I provide an update on the progress to date and the road ahead.
