In Events by EDCKC Staff

BioKansas teamed up with area leaders and organizations in the health, life sciences, tech, and economic industries to co-sponsor the first Innovation Festival. Participants had a chance to meet with economic development leaders and educators and learn about the efforts to bring more companies to the Kansas City area, while a line-up of musical acts entertained attendees.

EDCKC was proud to sponsor travel to the festival for Howard University students within health fields. Jim Erickson, EDCKC Director of Strategic Initiatives, participated on a panel to discuss how EDCKC contributes to the growth of the health and life sciences industry in KCMO, and the EDC team showcased our programs at a booth.
