KU Elevate will have an intimate, TED Talk-style feel — from the staging to the production quality to the storytelling-style presentations — and is geared toward Kansas City business and thought leaders. The event will be hosted by Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little, with special guest and Uber executive Brian McClendon, who is widely known as the co-founder of Google Earth and a KU alumnus.
