THE CENTER OF TECH IN KANSAS CITY
In honor of one of the most wonderful weeks of the year, get acquainted with KCTC's computer science mascot Cassie, check out helpful resources in the KC tech community and more.
What We Do
Together with our member companies, we focus on three strategic pillars:
The tech industry employs one in every 10 workers in Kansas City. Through events such as The CEO Retreat, Access : Granted and our Executive Roundtable Series and conversations with industry leaders on our Byte by Byte podcast, we strive to create a unique space for these 100,000+ workers to connect, collaborate and achieve.
Every successful tech hub has one thing in common: a strong tech talent pipeline. In 2020, more than 20,000 tech jobs were posted in the Kansas City region. We employ short-term and long-term solutions to help bridge our region’s tech talent gap. In 2021, we launched Apprenti KC, part of a nationally recognized apprenticeship program focused on diversity and equity in tech.
Legislative policy has the ability to help or hinder the growth and success of the tech industry. It is vital for KC’s industry to have a collective voice before our elected officials. Led by our Policy Committee of industry leaders, KCTC works to do just that. We actively monitor, champion or oppose emerging issues that impact the industry, and inform our members on the issues they should prioritize.
