We Create

When you start a business or grow one, when you #ShopLocalKC, when you invest in a startup, when you connect an entrepreneur to a resource, when you reach out for help with your idea, when you provide training to a business owner—when you do any of those things, you help strengthen our economy and make Kansas City a great place to live, work and play.

Because when you choose KC, you create KC.

We Create KC is a series of ecosystem reports about Kansas City entrepreneurship. Through our jobs, capital and corporate engagement reports (and dashboards below), we are showing how, together, universities, investors, entrepreneurs, service providers and community leaders are shaping a stronger, brighter, more inclusive future for KC.

And these reports are also a call to action for the entire Kansas City community to step up, reach out and help advance entrepreneurship and innovation in Kansas City.

Because we are better when we are connected.
