Kansas City has a lot to offer tech startups from funding to hiring opportunities, as well as networking at one of the many coworking venues that have opened their doors or locally organized events offered by accelerator programs.

Many jobs have been created by tech startups and when Kansas City became the first major city to receive Google Fiber, it became home to some large companies, as well as attracting additional players. In 2016 Virgin Mobile USA made Kansas City its home, plus other major companies such as Honeywell, General Motors and Garmin to name a few.
Some people may think of Kansas City as the place for barbeques and baseball, but its startup ecosystem is rapidly growing with coworking venues playing their part to support fledgling innovative minds.
