Startland News hosts a variety of events intended to create a better-connected, more-informed entrepreneurial and innovation community in Kansas City.
Kansas City Startups to Watch is an annual showcase of innovation, 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 — each one thought by the Startland News editorial team to carry serious newsmaking potential in the year ahead.
Startups to Watch consists of an annual profile series and in-depth reporting special which is broadcast virtually and in-person during a high-end cocktail hour and reception intended to connect the entrepreneurial community and curious citizens with the year’s class of honorees.
Kansas City Community Builders to Watch is a limited feature series, recognizing a curated group of Kansas Citians with exceptional stories of community impact and honored for their work to build a Kansas City where entrepreneurs, innovators, makers, creatives, risk-takers, leaders, learners, teachers, and builders thrive together.
Community Builders to Watch consists of an annual profile series and in-depth reporting special which is broadcast each summer virtually and in-person during a high-end cocktail hour and reception intended to connect the entrepreneurial community and curious citizens with the year’s class of honorees.
Startland News LIVE is an ongoing event series dedicated to connection, conversation, and coverage of Kansas City-area starters with stories too bold to tell only in print.
Each event offers audiences an immersive look at the latest Startland News headlines, live interviews and discussions with recent newsmakers, and interactive segments that offer starters a chance to showcase their work to the public — instead of just talking about it.
Startland News LIVE is intended to expand the abilities of Startland News’ reporting beyond character limits and word counts while opening a door for its reporting team, sources, and readers to connect in a meaningful way that promotes community news engagement and connectivity within the local innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
