behind the show.
Being a 27-year veteran of the medical device industry, Kirk continues to channel his passion to make a difference in healthcare into the start-ups that the Silicon Prairie Center incubates.
He is particularly proud of the work Silicon Prairie Center-incubated company, Progressive NEURO, Inc, has done to develop ischemic stroke devices that provide physicians with options beyond traditional thrombectomy and aspiration.
Silicon Prairie Center-incubated company Assistive Technology Solutions, Inc is developing products to help keep patients independent and safer in their homes through mobility tracking.
The Silicon Prairie Center and Wonderphil Entertainment produced independent film, #MyCorona. #MyCorona is the world's first feature film to be directed entirely remotely and was filmed on a closed set at the Silicon Prairie Center Studios in 2020.
After high school and chasing a passion for music, Rylie worked for companies in the areas of Customer Service, Sales and Marketing with another 10 years + experience in the trades, electrical , plumbing, heating and air, & residential real estate home inspection. Realizing that the world of music and making money as a musician was heavily saturated and success would be a tall order for the best of the best, Rylie got the idea maybe he could take everything he had learned from his passion for music , customer service and sales and trade skills and put them all together and apply them to a less saturated market. What would happen?
In 2015 Rylie started his own business Mills Farm Nebraska and quickly became successful nationally selling custom signs, fire pits , hitch covers and more. Today Mills Farm Nebraska sells to all 50 states retail and wholesale orders.
While starting Mills Farm Nebraska Rylie got involved with his local Chamber of Commerce and joined the Chamber Board of Directors in 2018. In March 2021 Rylie stepped down from board President to fill the open Executive Director Position.
