Founded by Darcy Howe, KCRise Fund I launched in October of 2016 as an initiative of KC Rising, a long-term vision for the greater Kansas City region to build capacity, bring existing businesses to scale and fully realize the KC region’s potential. KCRise Fund is a co-investment fund, which invests side-by-side with other institutional venture capital investors in early-stage companies based in Kansas and western half of Missouri. The fund targets high-growth companies in this region seeking at least $1 million in capital. Our investors include corporations, family offices and prominent business leaders in the region. In 2019, KCRise Fund II was launched, bringing total committed capital to over $40 million under management.
