Davide Rossi of Kansas City-based FitBark was chosen to participate in a nationally recognized year-long Fellowship designed to accelerate the growth of high-performance entrepreneurs.

The Pipeline Entrepreneurial Fellowship program has announced that Davide Rossi, Co-Founder & CEO of FitBark Inc. (Kansas City, MO) will join the 2015 Class of Entrepreneurial Fellows.

Pipeline is an exclusive community of high-potential entrepreneurial leaders building high-growth companies throughout the Midwest Region. Each year, approximately a dozen new Fellows representing the Region’s top entrepreneurial companies are invited to join Pipeline after an extensive selection process.

New Fellows from Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri participate in a unique and rigorous year-long business leadership development program focused on accelerating the growth of their companies. Pipeline blends workshop modules, advice from national experts and a deepening of the relationships among the Pipeline Members.

Davide is thrilled to have been accepted into such a phenomenal organization and can’t wait to leverage Pipeline’s network and mentorship to accelerate the growth of FitBark. He looks forward to working alongside talented individuals, unlocking the top resources of the Midwest and becoming a member of the Pipeline family.

Pipeline’s entrepreneurs do not just “learn about business.” The aim is to undergo a life altering experience that also changes the direction and trajectory of their company and connects them to lifelong friends and allies.

In the process, Pipeline entrepreneurs recognize the power of the network and remain engaged as they start new companies, enter even higher growth issues, become investors and continue as leaders in Pipeline and in their communities.

“Pipeline works to grow these entrepreneurs as leaders of their businesses and their communities,” said Joni Cobb, Pipeline president and CEO. “Our ‘family’ of members is the next generation of entrepreneurs who will lead the way for our economic growth and innovation in the Region, the country and the world.”

Pipeline announced its annual entrepreneurial awards, including the Innovator of the Year award, at its sold out annual Innovator of the Year (IOTY) event at The Midland in Kansas City. Over 600 from Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska – and other parts of the nation – gathered to celebrate regional entrepreneurship and recognize entrepreneurial growth and contributions.
