Startup Village Takes Kauffman Stadium!

1WeekKC’s Wednesday event: EDay at the “K”  kicked off under a private tent behind the stadium. The fantastic panel of entrepreneurs: Anna Stork of Luminaid, Hailee Bland-Walsh of City Gym KC, Brad Jannega of WebPT, Tom Ellingson of Fandeavor, and Davyeon Ross of Shottracker took their turn to answer questions and talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of running a startup. Every panelist expressed how they turned passion into success.

A complementary meal of ballpark favorites was served promptly after the speakers finished. Attendees ate and connected before heading into the stadium to watch the first pitch.  The rest of the event was spent laughing and socializing while watching the game.

Although the Royals couldn’t pull out a win, the event was still a smashing success!
