Networking, networking and yes, more networking!
Last Thursday night, 1102 GRAND was thrilled to be the Host Sponsor for the KCnext IT Happy Hour at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. The venue, of course, was solid and the vibe was excellent as 450+ people relentlessly networked. We have always been huge believers in the power of face to face networking and this event did not disappoint.
I had meaningful conversations with CIOs, developers, CTOs, IT directors, owners, etc. I was able to visit with a few local startup companies and listened to challenges they are facing. Conversely, I spoke with a larger company and learned what types of innovative projects they have coming down the pipeline. What a great dynamic!
If you happened to miss this networking opportunity and want to save the date for the upcoming KCnext Summer IT Networking Happy Hour it is scheduled for Thursday, July 26 at the Negro League Baseball Museum.

Hope to see you there, or at the next KCnext event!
