Venture Friday: Startup Roundup & Happy Hour hosted by Red Nova Labs & Sprint

Entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts, join us on Friday for Startup Roundup and Happy Hour at Sprint.

Venture Fridays is a simple but fun concept: The startup culture of Kansas City and surrounding areas is invited to discuss what we’re all thinking about, working on, needing help with, and might do for each other. Existing or aspiring entrepreneurs of all types and ages are invited. Let’s raise our glasses to building the entrepreneurial culture beyond ourselves.

This time we're working with Sprint to help introduce their growing support of the KC entrepreneurial community. At this special Startup Roundup, a dozen specially-selected entrepreneurs are going to spout their 60-pitches, then hang out at their own tables to casually chat and show off work-in-progress. You won't want to miss this one. It's going to be a great opportunity for one-on-ones with area entrepreneurs who are "making it happen."

Where?

Sprint Winter Garden
adjacent to 6220 Sprint Parkway
Overland Park KS 66251

    I remember that at this event I met a group of two guys offering web design service in exchange of a certain percentage of equity. Unfortunately, I lost the contact. Does anybody here know that and could you send me the info? Thanks...

    Had a great time hearing from the different new start-ups and reconnecting with some people, plus being able to meet with them one-on-one throughout the event. I always love hearing what people are working on and helping them find connections with my resources. It gets the creativity flowing and offers an energizing way to end the week!

    Really good time. Loved the space and all the attendees, especially those startups that showcased their ideas. My only quip would be how quickly it ended. Sprint swept the drinks and food away rather quickly, but I understand it's a corporate location and these are the rules.

    Excellent!

    Added 5 more spots to the people on the waiting list. We may run out of food and beverages, but there should be plenty of caloric conversations.

      Sorry, Carrie, I'm still at work and not going to be able to make it either. I give my spot to someone more worthy than myself :)

      September 21, 2012

    • Chris M.

      Sorry, we won't make it either. Coty Beasly, Chad Elliot, and I ended up scheduling a meeting to get some work done. That opens up 2 - 3 more, depending on who of us RSVP'd.

    TeenJobz.com will not be in the showcase tomorrow... They are now in the middle of an acquisition. Chris Dinitto (TeenJobz.com's founder) will still be presenting “Fannect” with Hunter Browning (as they are cofounders).

    September 20, 2012

    • Matthew W. M.

      Wow, an acquisition before their site launches. Impressive. Nice work Chris. #shareyoursecret

    Seeing as the Sprint campus has its own zip code, any specifics on where exactly in the campus this event is being held? :)
