Join us as we showcase some of the successes and innovations that have emerged from Kansas City’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

About this event

The workshop will be held from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM on Wednesday, May 18th at The Futures Group – 1801 Oak Street, Kansas City, MO 64108

The Comeback KC Ventures program is designed to highlight new solutions that have emerged in response to COVID-19, and to support entrepreneurs developing these solutions into ongoing products, service lines, and businesses.

This 18-month program is led by KC Digital Drive and the UMKC Innovation Center.

Event attendees will interact with and see presentations from program participants – giving these innovators a chance to highlight what they have been working on, and to provide the broader community the opportunity to celebrate the early successes coming out of their work and the Kansas City ecosystem.

Plus, you will learn more about the Comeback KC Ventures program, including how you can participate as a startup, advisor or mentor.
