Speaking Startup: A look at inclusion and Global Entrepreneurship Week

This week on Speaking Startup, it’s almost Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The worldwide series of entrepreneurship-focused events takes place Nov. 18-24, and Kansas City is slated to host more than 200 of those events.

To mark the occasion and explore one of the week’s key themes — inclusion — we visit with Mary Shannon, who’s the founder of Connectus Worldwide and serves on the organizing team for Global Entrepreneurship Week in Kansas City.

Then, we chat with Nia Richardson of InnovateKC. The 16-week “startup in residence program” connects technology startups to city departments in an effort to solve problems facing city government.
