Pending snow postpones Hackovate Health, cancels 1 Million Cups

Kansas City February 25, 2013 by Danny Schreiber

With up to a foot of snow expected by Wednesday in some parts of Kansas City, two startup events have made changes to their schedules.

Hackovate Health, a half-day competition originally scheduled for Tuesday, has been postponed to Thursday. The event's new start time is 3 p.m.

1 Million Cups, a Wednesday morning gathering at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, has been canceled this week.

Startup Grind, which is also on Wednesday, is still on, co-organizer Daniel Linhart confirmed in a phone call today. The group postponed last week due to weather, but this time Linhart said it'll happen.

For more events this week, see our event post: "Startup Grind, Plains Angels training, Awesome Camp and 13 more events".
