Kansas City - A Fast-Growing Startup Ecosystem

What's up fellow grinders!  As you know, Startup Grind is launching a new chapter in Kansas City, MO, with its first event on January 17 of next year.  Kansas City is in the center of not only the heartland, but also Silicon Prairie.  KC is moving in the right direction with regards to entrepreneurship and startup communities, creating an ecosystem of awareness, action, and business growth.  The link below is to a great article released by the Kauffman Foundation, the largest foundation in the world devoted to entrepreneurship.  I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in the great city in which Startup Grind is launching in 2013.  Kansas City will truly be a great community in which to be educated, inspired, and connected with other entrepreneurs!

"Kansas City has many of the attributes it needs to become an entrepreneurial hot spot: talented innovators, investors and large firms specialized in technology and life sciences. The problem is, Kansas City is not aware of those assets. Yet."
