Maybe We Could Do That In A Small Town
Tuesday six of us traveled to Kansas City and met with several businesses and leaders to see what their start up community was doing. The picture below is John Hawkins-mayor, me, Nate Olson, Zach Chizek-attorney, Brian Miller-city council, Maureen Seamonds-artist, Logan Welch-city council and Adam Arredondo. Nate Olson works for Crema and they are a dynamic team of product designers, developers, and business strategists building digital products for startups & evolving brands. Adam is the co-founder and director of entrepreneurship of CEED, a startup ecosystem incubator.
Adam has developed the Hitchhikers Guide to the Kansas City Start up Community and you can view it here. It shows you all you need to know about the start up community in KC: start ups, work spaces, bankers, initiatives, social media, events, meet ups, conferences, investors, conferences, accelerators, incubators, support organizations, design shops, friendly corporations, coworking spaces, maker spaces, legal, banking, media coverage, jobs, newsletters, blogs, and hangout spots.
Do we have all those things? Nope. But we do have some of them! Maybe we could start our own Hitchhikers Guide to the Webster City Start Up Community.
