LaunchKC Global Grants Competition

LaunchKC is a nonprofit, civic engine for the Kansas City tech scene.

Beginning in 2015, LaunchKC will introduce a national business model competition that will award up to 10 (ten) $50,000 non-dilutive grants to early stage entrepreneurs and their tech ventures in order to attract and build high-growth, I.T. sector businesses and jobs in Downtown KC.

Our mission is to continue the momentum of our entrepreneurial ecosystem in Downtown through investing in scalable, vertical sectors where Kansas City already has considerable expertise, such as Advanced Manufacturing, Animal Health, Cloud Services, Data Analytics, EdTech, FinTech, HealthTech, Mobile and Real Estate Tech.

Following an extended application review process, the eventual grant recipients will be selected by a LaunchKC judging panel consisting of Kansas City business leaders and national venture capitalists at Techweek Kansas City on Sept. 18, 2015.
