Kansas City: A Town Built on BBQ, Jazz, and Trains
With Kansas City experiencing tremendous growth, both in their startup and overall economic activity, it's important to reflect on the city's amazing history and how it's become the midwest epicenter of startups in recent years. There are many reasons to enjoy a trip to KCMO, but the food, the culture, the cost of living, and the startup scene is more than enough to entice an out-of-towner to consider making the move to Kansas City. With its strong history in the Jazz community, it's tremendous barbecue, and it's development of some of the most innovative train technology we still use to this very day; it's no wonder why Kansas City was destined for greatness when it decided to become a startup hub. Read on to discover how Kansas City is making a name for itself and how mindStart plans on helping startups across the Kansas City area excel, grow, and become full-fledged companies.
The startup culture throughout the KCMO area is one which prides itself on being an oasis in an otherwise deserted landscape in the midwest. There's not too much going on, startup-wise, in the surrounding areas of Kansas City. With this in mind, there's even more of a drive to shine bright amongst the competition from say Chicago, Austin, SF, etc... With all of this opportunity, whether it be in the form of investors eager to accelerate the Kansas City startup scene or brilliant minds relocating to the city to set up shop in hopes of making it big; there remains a sense of pending success within nearly all of the startups Kansas City seems to produce.
Besides the fact the startup scene is booming, the economy itself in Kansas City has lent itself to see some amazing growth.
