In 2011, Kansas City leaders set a goal to become the country’s most entrepreneurial city. What progress has been made so far and what’s up next? Two leaders at the heart of this transformation, Adam Arredondo, executive director of the KC Startup Foundation, and Maria Meyers, executive director of the UMKC Innovation Center and founder of SourceLink, offer insight into KC’s vibrant startup community, lead a workshop about progress and challenges, then lead a discussion about its future.
