Kansas City is generating a lot of buzz about its growing startup community. On this edition of Up To Date, we talk with three entrepreneurs who are creating sports technology that could change the way we train and work out in the near future.  

Guests: 

  • Benjamin Harvatine is the co-founder of the Jolt Sensor, a sensor that tracks potential concussions and tracks accelerated movement in athletes. 
  • Brendan Reilly is the CEO of EON Sports Virtual Reality, which is a virtual football training program.
  • Davyeon Ross is the co-founder of ShotTracker, a wearable basketball workout tracker.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
Slow news days are a thing of the past. As KCUR’s news director, I want to cut through the noise, provide context to the headlines, and give you news you can use in your daily life – information that will empower you to make informed decisions about your neighborhood, your city and the region.
