Conventions & Meetings

  1. Flagship

    October 23, 2019, 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM @ Civic Plus

    The stories you'll hear in our fireside chats (sans fire) aren't case studies from businesses and people you'll never know, never meet. They are real, first-hand, authentic accounts of what happened when a business ran out of funds on their way to rapid growth, what happened when another business was acquired by an industry leader, and what is happening as an entrepreneur is currently scaling with successful funding.
    We'll bring into the mix some insights from the financial world and get different takes on how things progressed for our businesses, what paths can be taken when scaling, and what they see as true potential in tech growth in the future. And the beautiful thing is, all of these businesses, these people, are right here, in Kansas.
