During One Week KC, Silicon Prairie News hosted Trivia Night at the Beacon. Tragically, my team didn’t win. I blame the guys for believing startup-fetishist Ashton Kutcher has more Twitter followers than meat-suitist Lady Gaga. I doused my humiliation with an IPA and some jeers at the competition, but I wouldn’t say I went home empty-handed. It was a great atmosphere for making a few new friends.
That’s why the next Venture Friday meetup is taking inspiration from SPN’s event. ...At least, that’s what I’m telling myself to justify the added expense of prizes. Truth be told, we just want to have some fun this time. Summer is winding down and people are heading back to school, it’s kind of a bummer.
August 10th we’ll host Startup Trivia Night at Red Nova Labs, with questions tailored around local and national entrepreneurship — including a lot of you. Winning teams of each round will split $100, with more exotic prizes going to those individuals who answer bonus trivia.
As usual, doors will open at 4 p.m. Since a lot of you can’t get to our place that early, the Startup Trivia game will begin just after 5 p.m. and run until about 7 p.m. A lot of our members have requested a repeat of our Rapid Intros format, so we’re thinking about experimenting with a hybrid event, mixing up the teams between trivia rounds.
Later this fall we’re looking forward to hosting another Startup Roundup as well as a Rapid Intro. And we’ve invited Blue Valley CAPS to speak about their goal of partnering with local intelligences on various immersion programs for their students.
If you’d like to showcase your biz at the next Startup Roundup, email me.
Brush up on your startup knowledge and we’ll see you in a couple of weeks.
