About Kansas start-up

Kansas Startup is a great opportunity for anyone interested in starting a business, nonprofit or cause-related organization to share their idea with others and create a viable organization over a weekend.

On Friday evening participants meet each other, pitch ideas and then form teams around the best ideas. The teams work on their concepts over a 48-hour period receiving valuable input and guidance from coaches with professional and industry experience. The even concludes with team presentations to a panel of distinguished judges on Sunday evening.

Kansas Startup is the largest entrepreneurial event in Kansas and this year it marks its 5th anniversary. Kansas Startup is a fast-paced, high-energy activity that brings entrepreneurs together to launch new business ideas. Anyone who is interested in starting a business – or about learning the process of forming a startup – is welcome, regardless of background or experience.
You bring your ideas and a laptop and we will bring everything else!
