A topic I would like to see at iKC:

Increasing KC entrepreneur diversity

Currently the characteristics of a newly successful entrepreneur in Kansas City seems to lean towards middle-aged white males who already have experience starting a business or are former executives.

I think we need a serious discussion on if an idea is worth attempting to create a business out of. Are you passionate about it? Are you willing to spend years of your life pursuing it? Will it solve problems or bring others happiness? Will it sell? Is there a market? Has it already been done? These are all very important evaluations that need to be done before making the decision to take the leap.
