KC Tech Council

The KC Tech Council is a 501c6 non-profit association and serves as the regional advocate for Kansas City's Tech Industry. Comprised of over 130 member companies and sponsors, the organization focuses work on three primary areas - workforce development, industry access, and policy advocacy.


The KC Tech Council is comprised of about 130 member companies,

representing the many facets of the tech industry in the Kansas City area.

While primarily tech companies, we also count many from the legal, marketing,

insurance, financial and other industries as members. Though varied in type

and scale, our members share one important common trait: they recognize the

the important role the tech industry plays in shaping the future economic growth of

our region, and acknowledge that they cannot foster and sustain that growth

on their own.


That’s where we come in. The KC Tech Council divides its work among three

strategic pillars: workforce development, policy advocacy, and industry

access. The involvement and investment of enterprise leaders in technology is

essential for our organization, and Accenture is an exemplary member of this



As Kansas City continues to strive for a competitive, prepared workforce to

service a growing tech ecosystem, our workforce development efforts, both

long and short-term will be vital.


As more tech companies scale, innovate and seek partners our efforts in

industry access will allow them the platform to connect, collaborate and



In a changing legislative landscape, our policy advocacy will put first the

interests of Accenture, and all our member companies looking to ensure that

this region’s public policy welcomes and fosters the growth and sustainability

of the industry.
