Appy Hour: Silicon Prairie Innovators


Don't you love how the moment you think you know everything there is to know about Kansas City – it’ll turn around  and surprise you? Like this factoid: we live one of the highest ranking cities for app creators per square mile.

On this Wednesday's Central Standard, we’ll be joined by a panel of app makers who say they’re part of a modern day gold rush. We'll be joined by Jim Barnes, CTO of Moblico, Kirk Hasenzahl, Founder and President of Rarewire, and Aaron Sloup, CEO of Lantern.

Is KC a perfect place to innovate? Why or why not? Call in at 816-235-2888, send us a tweet, or shoot us an e-mail.
