“Smart folks in Boston have Kansas City not only on their radar, but on their speed dial,” he said. “There’s an ecosystem — a bubbling cauldron of entrepreneurialism, and that has real psychic advantages. … There’s a lot of hunger in this city for success. A lot of hunger in this city for people to see others succeed — not just themselves — and that palpable sense of community is missing in a lot places.” – Mark DiSalvo, CEO of Boston-area Semaphore Capital Advisors LLC; (article by Bobby Burch, KCBJ)
