Venture Friday (an entrepreneur's happy hour)

Tech entrepreneurs in and around KC, join us for happy hour!

Venture Fridays is a simple but fun concept: The startup culture of Kansas City and surrounding areas is invited to gather 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.

In July, Red Nova Labs is co-hosting with the Enterprise Center of Johnson County (ECJC) at the Lenexa Conference Center. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Sometimes Venture Fridays will be co-located with other events, sometimes not. Either way, we’ll be here drinking and thinking. Will you? Drop in.

No soliciting or mooching please (entrepreneurial mojo required; read more in Discussions).

No one under 21 without prior notification/consent (contact the organizers for info).

Want to present your idea, get feedback, or find testers? Have an idea for an awesome entrepreneurial jam? We invite startup stimulation. Contact Carrie at Red Nova Labs.

Entrepreneurs are driven by a need to create something new or build something tangible under conditions of extreme uncertainty. They’re spontaneously creative, able and willing to make decisions from the gut, and generally risk-takers. Entrepreneurship is also largely about helping others achieve the goals they care about. Is that you? Are you a driven outsider, possessed of a unique genius, ready to take outrageous risks and work incomprehensible hours to beat the odds? Well then, we like you already. Welcome to the group!

    I had an enjoyable time as always, though with the later timeframe, it seemed that not as many people stayed for networking after the presentations. I didn't get to talk with many people, as I was later arriving due to traffic and issues finding the venue.

    I enjoyed attending the event on Friday. I met people I plan to follow up with later this week. In addition, I enjoyed the presentations and learning more about ECJC. The food and drinks were awesome!

    Great group, excellent presenters! However I was hoping for a lot more interaction, discuss challenges, share experiences and synergies and see how we can help each other...
    Again this is my first meet up and hoping to see a lot more in the future meet-up's...

    I had a great time. This was my first time at one of these events and I really enjoyed meeting so many new people. I liked the presentations, but I do think the "speed networking" theme I'd heard about the previous event would have been great, too.

    What will the format be this time? Last month was my first time and I loved the speed-networking ...
