Hey, What’s the Big Idea Camp?


It’s an informal think tank made up of Kansas City’s creative young minds looking to share in a productive exchange of thoughts and big ideas.


Big Idea Camp focuses on entrepreneurial ideas, hunches, dreams, inspirations, aspirations…well, you get the picture. Whatever you possess, Big Idea Camp will help it take flight. This beneficial two-day event recognizes Kansas City’s support of entrepreneurs and EntrepreneurshipWeek USA festivities.


Additional discussion topics could include:


• Starting your big idea

• Finding funding

• Turning your dream into a plan

• Many others intended to help launch your big idea


Looking to expand on your big idea? Got something to contribute? Have a burning desire to learn? If so, we can’t wait to meet you.


Big Idea Camp will follow the BarCamp format – a casual, inspirational forum showcasing the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It’s an event that’s as fun as it is intense – filled with creative discussions, demos and group interaction. Find out more that’s in store at barcamp.org
