 “It is no coincidence that Launch KC was unveiled the day after Google Fiber completed its first-ever registration drive in KCMO and KCK,” said Bill Dietrich, president and CEO of the Downtown Council. “We are eager to show the world that Kansas City, Missouri, is not only getting wired for one gigabit fiber, but also is flourishing as a hub of technology and creativity.”

Launch KC is a Kansas City, Missouri, strategic initiative designed to attract and develop IT entrepreneurs and professionals to the thriving information technology community in the Crossroads and throughout greater Downtown. Research shows 157 tech-related businesses are currently located in greater Downtown, employing nearly 4,000 people.

Launch KC was conceived last year through public-private collaboration on the Mayors’ Bi-State Innovation Task Force and developed under the leadership of the Mayor’s office, the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) of Kansas City and the Downtown Council (DTC) of Kansas City. The current Launch KC task force, chaired by Mike Burke, features a team of business and civic leaders, economic developers, I.T. entrepreneurs and communication industry experts.
