Subject: Mayor Needed: Will you accept our Land Shark Invitation - Pure Pitch Rally October 12, 2020 LOEWS Hotel in Kansas City

Dear Nan:

I'm inviting you to accept our invitation to be a Land Shark (judge) for the 5th annual Pure Pitch Rally. Click here for more news

This year is special as we invite 30+ mayors from the KC region to join us for start-up event that features eight Kansas City new tech companies DEMO their product, vision, and future.

Last year's sharks Michelle Distler (Shawnee Mayor) and Tim Cowden (KCADC) are part of our economic development team. Many cities ask how they can be involved in the KC metro start-up scene...this is it!

Should you accept this invitation, you will select your own WINNER of the rally, award them a $1,000 economic development donation, and get your picture taken with them with a future commitment to have a 1:1 coffee to further give them valued business advice.

We need the whole KC metro ecosystem to support more start-up growth overall as well as in communities across our metro. Thoughts?

I would welcome the opportunity to answer your questions via a 15-minute Zoom call.

All the best,


PS Social distancing, facemasks and all appropriate measures are in place at the LOEWS Hotel. And, don't be surprised if I show up dressed as a shark.
