Let's Do A Theme Night


NXT events are supersized versions of a Thursday Gathering including themed programming, food & drink that underwrite a month of Venture Café programming.

Our NXT@4240 events are held on the 4th Thursday of the month.
As our Thursday Gatherings are from 3-8pm on the 2nd floor, there will be 8-12 sessions planned for the evening as well as beer and wine available in the café space. At 5pm, NXT@4240 will come alive on the 1st floor, with sponsor activations and 5 food and drink vendors offering tastings.

Leading up to the culminating event we will work with you to create a series of sessions which build awareness and promote the upcoming event. We will also promote the event via our newsletter, social media, radio show on KMOX, our podcast and at our weekly/monthly events.
