S2 E9 Scaling Up Tech Founder Chats - Wichita
Nov 22nd, 2019 by saunderscash
For this podcast we recorded the FlagshipKansas.Tech Scaling Up Tech event, held on October 16, 2019, in Wichita, Kansas.
As the official podcast partner of FlagshipKansas, the technology council for the state of Kansas we were able to capture most of the chats and discussion between the founders of three local technology companies. These chats are real, first-hand, authentic accounts of what happened to a business on their way to rapid growth, what happened when another business is acquired by an industry leader, and what is happening as an entrepreneur is currently scaling with successful funding.
The chats were hosted by Lisa Roberts, the Executive Director for FlagshipKansas and the speakers included Miguel Johns, CEO and founder of KingFit, a local startup technology company featuring educational videos for various major health issues with a focus on diabetes education and the winner of the 2019 Visionary Award for best tech startup, Also on the panel were Joy Eakins, CEO and founder of Cornerstone Data, a Wichita based company focused on solutions to help clients understand use their business data more effectively and TJ Frevert, a company with headquarters in Wichita with a focus on innovative technologies supporting call monitoring and analytics to insure clients are getting the highest level of customer service.
In these chats you will learn from the first hand stories of the speakers how they were able to not only get started on the entrepreneurial journey but grow their business and learn to respond to the changing demands of their markets and customers.
This event was sponsored by Foreman Law, BKD, CPAs and Advisors and Intrust Bank.
