In 2022, Startland News brought its annual showcase of innovation to the small screen, offering curious citizens, investors, program managers, and peers in the startup community an in-depth look at 10 of Kansas City’s fastest-growing startups.
The event — offered virtually and presented in partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation — features Startland News reporters Tommy Felts, Channa Steinmetz, Austin Barnes, and Blythe Dorrian in conversation with the founders who lead the Startups to Watch companies showcased in the publication’s 2022 list and explored ways in which they’re disrupting industries in Kansas City and beyond.
More than 1,000 guests streamed the virtual event.
