  • The tech industry’s ability to grow depends on legislation that allows them to, so the KC Tech Council goes straight to the source.

    We work closely with legislators at the federal, state, and local level to advocate for policy that will cultivate a strong and progressive tech community. Advising legislators and thought leadership is part of our job, and we take it seriously.

    The KC Tech Council has spearheaded state and federal policy advocacy trips, where business and education leaders from the community have the opportunity to speak on policy that has a direct impact on workforce development.
