KCnext Event at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park Draws Over 400 Attendees

By: Micah Pratt, director, and Valerie Jennings, CEO

KCnext has been attracting crowds across the metro, specializing in mobile apps, software development, IT and investors.  Silicon Prairie has grown up! We had the privilege of attending the event last night with our clients and friends Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global; Mark Dryer, president of MDL Technology; T.J. Bloom, COO of MDL Technology; Greg Elliott, business development director at 1102 GRAND; and Todd Applegate, general manager at 1102 GRAND.  We also had the honor of meeting with the editor and news editor at The Pitch, speaking with some of the area’s most influential technology pro¹s including Ryan Weber, who was recently named KCnext president.

Anytime you bring together like-minded individuals, you can expect great things to happen.  It was great to see how strong the technology community in Kansas City has become and it’s always amazing to see people come together to share ideas on how to transform Kansas City into a technology hotspot.   Events like these reinforce why Kansas City is in the running to be named the most entrepreneurial city in America.

I can’t wait until the next KCnext event, and I urge everyone to join! Check out their calendarfollow them on Twitter and “like” them on  Facebook.
