The Kansas City Startup Foundation is a 501(c)3 dedicated to accessing the passion, ingenuity and collaborative spirit of the Kansas City startup community through education, storytelling and connections to empower individuals to solve the challenges of today.


Entrepreneurial thinking is the only way to solve the issues of today and for future generations. We encourage this mindset through community outreach, events and educational opportunities with the community at large.


Hearing the stories of the ecosystem stakeholders, founders, investors and innovators in the Kansas City area helps to bolster the community through awareness.


A connected community is a strong community. We offer events and networking opportunities in order to strengthen the ties between entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, government and schools.
