Thanks to an all-expenses-paid trip earlier this year, a University of Houston student discovered the Kansas City startup community. The student, Andrew Douglass, a management information systems major, in March earned a trip to participate in “Hacking the Gigabit City.” One month later he returned for “Hack of the Sexes,” where he won “best emerging idea.” Now, he wants others from his community to share in the experience he had at Kansas City Startup Village and “possibly convince Houstonites to form a startup village of our own,” he said. The University recently highlighted Douglass’ story on its website. – Source: University of Houston
