April Luncheon - Kevin McGinnis, CEO of the Keystone Community Corporation

Speaker: Kevin McGinnis, Former Sprint Accelerator Founder and Managing Director

Seeing challenges across the region that hinder Kansas City's ability to compete with its peer metro regions, Kevin McGinnis has announced plans for a collaborative innovation district that could become a catalyst for economic growth across the region. As the CEO of the Keystone Community Corporation, the nonprofit entity driving development of the Keystone Innovation District, Kevin sees potential in the 18th Street corridor connecting the Jazz and Crossroads districts and an opportunity to address societal gaps and further develop the startup community. Kevin believes that creating a centralized hub of activity is crucial to the citywide growth of the local innovation ecosystem.

As the former Founder and Managing Executive of the Sprint Accelerator, McGinnis is well-versed in driving business development and innovation for KC. The Sprint Accelerator provides a focal point promoting collisions and collaboration within the community between Sprint and the startup community. As former CEO of Pinsight Media, a big data subsidiary of Sprint, and the VP of Product at Sprint, Kevin also understands the need to facilitate active corporate engagement across the ecosystem and create a foundation for stronger mentorship, corporate innovation and the success of high-growth technology companies in the region.
