Speaking Startup: Accelerating entrepreneurs’ pandemic pivots

Across Missouri, startups have shifted their products and services in response to the the COVID-19 pandemic.

Multiple businesses that have undergone pandemic pivots participated in the Black & Veatch COVID-19 Response Accelerator. The program, run by Kansas City-area engineering firm Black & Veatch, was created to help accelerate the growth of businesses trying to address problems presented by COVID-19. On this week’s podcast, we caught up with a couple of Missouri-based companies that participated in the program.

Plus, we visited with the co-founder of a vegan food truck and restaurant in Kansas City who is building a business while trying to shift costumers’ attitudes about the food she serves.
