OMAHA, Neb. (Sept. 25, 2012)—Representatives from Pipeline, a Kansas City, Kan.-based regional entrepreneurial fellowship, are scheduled to present Thursday night at Cornstalks, a monthly forum hosted by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce for people interested in high-growth entrepreneurship.
Thursday’s event gets underway with networking at 6:30 p.m. and features a Pipeline presentation at 7:30. Cornstalks takes place at the Silicon Prairie News office (1111 North 13th St., Suite 208) and is free and open to the public.
Joni Cobb, the founding president and CEO of Pipeline, will talk Thursday. Others tentatively scheduled to present include Pipeline partners Dr. Michael Dixon (UNeMed) and Karen Linder (Nebraska Angels) and current Pipeline innovators Ben Pankonin (Social Assurance) and Blake Lawrence (Hurrdat Social Media).
Pipeline is a year-long program highlighted by intensive, three-day modules each quarter and an Innovator of The Year event in January. The program takes applicants from from Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska and seeks to fill its classes with entrepreneurs that hail from a variety of industries.
Pipeline is accepting applications for its 2013 class until Oct. 29. Thursday’s event is designed to help entrepreneurs interested in applying learn more about the program. People interested in attending Thursday are encouraged to RSVP to Nora Freyman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
