The Top Venture Capital-Backed Companies List recognizes the momentum pushing an emerging cohort of Kansas City growth-stage, venture-backed companies. 


Simply put, the list — updated and now published annually — shows a massive increase in venture capital deployed to Kansas City companies in 2019, as well as a significant jump in jobs at those businesses.


It is important to note that this is not a top 10 list but a comprehensive data set of self-reported information from every company that meets the following criteria and responded to our call for data:



  • Raised at least $1 million;

  • Raised capital from at least one institutional venture investor;

  • Raised a round of capital within the past three years (since July 1, 2016);

  • Pre-exit; and

  • Physically headquartered in the 18-county greater Kansas City region as defined by the KCADC.
