We make startups more successful, faster - guaranteed.


BetaBlox starts as an accelerator, turns into an incubator, and ends as an advisor. We do this through a rigorous three month boot camp, turned into three more months of incubation services, ending in years worth of consultation, advisory services, and more.

We take ten companies at a time and have processed more than 1,500 applications. We create the longest relationships with the most hands-on system of any other entity in the city that helps entrepreneurs. Anyone can apply, but only the most scalable opportunities led by the brightest entrepreneurs make it in. In exchange we take 5% equity in each venture. No cash, no leases, no retainers: just a promise to share in your success. We strive to be the foremost resource for startups and entrepreneurs in Kansas City.
