Highlight Midwest is here!



It’s finally here!

As many of you know, a number of us from Omaha are involved with a conference in Kansas City this week called Highlight Midwest

The goal of the conference is to “highlight” or showcase the interesting/exciting things that are going on in KC, Des Moines & Omaha regarding technology, entrepreneurship, innovation and social media.

There will be presentations from each of the cities, as well as a panel discussion. From the greater Omaha area, Dusty Davidson, Jeff Slobotski and Matt Secoske will be presenting.  The presentation will focus on Silicon Prairie News, and how it’s being used to build community and bring entrepreneurs out of the woodwork, or silos as we commonly reference.

Silicon Prairie News wants to invite you to join us online and watch LIVE on Wednesday (10/29) from 5pm-8pm. We’re thrilled to showcase the exciting things happening in Omaha, and would love for you to join us while we present at the Kauffman Center.  Our goal is to get over 100 people watching online Wednesday evening so help us spread the word!

You can watch live here…
