Kansas City: A Growing Tech Hub of the Midwest
In 2019, over 29,000 tech jobs were posted in the Kansas City region and our employers are eager to fill them. As a leading force in policy advocacy, industry access and workforce development, the KC Tech Council has launched Apprenti Kansas City. In the coming years, we plan to successfully grow and diversify the KC tech scene through the support of over 170 member organizations and community partners.
Kansas City has the distinct advantage of being geographically centered in the United States. With a deep history of innovation and entrepreneurship, and an established infrastructure, Kansas City is able to support both multinational corporations and startups.
Kansas City’s tech sector is growing faster than the national average and contributes to almost 10% of our regional economy. To learn more about why Kansas City is a great place to work and live, and information on relocation, make sure to check out TeamKC.

KC Tech Council
The KC Tech Council divides its work into three strategic pillars: workforce development, industry access and policy advocacy. This means that everything we do for our members is driven by those three elements. On a daily basis, we are seeking new members to join, staying in touch with current members, expanding workforce opportunities, discussing tech policy with lawmakers, planning events, and sharing the Kansas City tech story far and wide.
