Nov. 18 Cornstalks to showcase Graffiti Tracker, Client Resources, Inc.
It is Cornstalks time again, ladies and gentlemen! Your friendly neighborhood blogger is here to remind you that the newest episode of Cornstalks is taking place this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce building (1301 Harney St). As usual, milk, cookies, drinks, and networking goes down at 6:30 p.m., while the speakers will begin at 7:30.
I know what you're thinking: "Aaron, isn't Cornstalks usually on Thursdays? Also, you're awesome."
Well, you're right on both counts. As many of you may have noticed, the holiday season is nearly upon us, which means that we will all have to start shuffling around our calendars to make room for various celebrations. Because of this, our hero, Tom Chapman, has seen fit to move Cornstalks up a week (and a day) to avoid conflicting with Thanksgiving. Thanks, Tom!
This month, Cornstalks welcomes Susan Thaden of Client Resources, Inc., an Omaha-based company providing tech staffing and project management. Susan developed the concept for Client Resources, Inc. when she noticed the impact that tech and tech staffing needs had in business in the '90s. Since then, her company has blossomed to over 100 employees that serve many Omaha businesses.
In addition, Cornstalks attendees will be hearing from Tim Kephart of Graffiti Tracker, a software and analysis startup that helps cities and law enforcement track and prevent graffiti. They will be able to provide a particularly unique perspective in that they represent a company that was founded in California but then migrated to Omaha. I, for one, am glad that they have joined us.
For those of you who were unable to join us last time, Dr. Anne York of Creighton University's Entrepreneurship Program came to tell us about Creighton's new entrepreneur and innovation programs. One of program's students, Andrew McLaughlin, joined her to share his experiences. Some of you are probably now thinking: "Aaron, I can't believe I missed that! Also, you're still awesome." Fear not, we recorded the event. And you're still right.
