Monday, September 11, 2017 at 6:00:00 PM Think Big Partners 1712 Main Street, Kansas City, MO

If you have a civic idea, bring it Monday night!  All of the teams will be working on pitching their project at HackKC, September 23rd and 24th.

These projects rely on recruiting volunteers and partners from the community, so it is critical to communicate outside the team what kind of help is needed and why someone might care about your cause. Successful roles within a team go far beyond coding and design, and they vary in importance depending on the project: think about those roles going into your pitch and alter it based on what roles you think are possible within your project.

You will only have a few minutes to actively pitch during Hack KC, so we will all work in advance to make sure the call for help is clear and compelling.

If you have not registered for HackKC, please do that now!

Meeting Format

6:00 - Social / Networking
6:15 - Kickoff and Introductions
6:25 - How to Pitch

7:45 - Wrap up - get project updates

Location: Think Big CoWorking on the West side of the building.

Please RSVP so that we know how many snacks & drinks to bring.

Civic Heroes of all types welcome! This event is for coders and non-coders alike -- as long as you're interested in making government more transparent and building interesting things for our city, you're more than welcome!

Bring a laptop: If you intend on getting some hands-on hacking done (it's ok if you can't but it definitely helps to have one).

On first Mondays, there will be pizza! We'll be getting some 'za from Sizzle Pie, so there will be a vegetarian option.

If you have something you'd like to work on or are excited about, please let us know via the meetup or at the hack night itself. We are growing our initiative and the energy comes from the community.
