Tech firms hope KC Next expands, connects industry
Building on recent efforts to showcase Kansas City’s bioscience and animal health industries, a group of business leaders is rolling out a program to spotlight the area’s information technology community.
KC Next had its debut at an April 1 networking event for the tech sector. Organizers plan similar events in coming months with no set goals or timetables other than to build up the local industry.
“We’re hoping KC Next is going to be the group that brings together technology visionaries from all aspects of the industry, and the result is the development of innovative ideas and trying to ensure that we maintain that intellectual capital in the Kansas City region,” said Darren Bonawitz, co-owner of 1102 Grand, an Internet hub and colocation facility.
