Get Started Program Stages

 

We support entrepreneurs across the early stages of their company lifecycle, helping them build and execute their plan while developing the knowledge and capabilities they need to sustain growth.  No two companies are alike, and yet the fundamentals of building a business on solid footing are in many ways consistent.  At Get Started, we employ a methodology that's tested and proven by some of Kansas City's most successful entrepreneurs. Our goal is to help a new generation of technology startups move forward with confidence and create value for themselves, their employees and our community.
