In the wake of the COVID era, all bets are off. And these companies are eager to prove that the next great American startup will be built by start-ups settling on the silicon prairie.

Narrowing down the list to just 10 companies is nearly impossible, even after eight years of following startup newsmakers. The talent and tenacity of the Kansas City startup scene is fierce. The end result is but a small reflection of the entrepreneurial energy building across the city and is meant to highlight companies that the Startland News editorial team believe have great potential to make news in the coming year.

Let’s be clear: there is no competition between companies, and there is no “top startup” that claims to be better than the rest. The list exists to amplify cutting-edge innovation and unlock new opportunities for some of the fastest growing startups in the city that might otherwise go under the radar.

The 2023 list was compiled through more than six months of research and recurring conversations with community experts, funders, and support organizations. Ultimately, the list selection was largely based on the founders’ honesty, openness, and track record.

The Startland News editorial team selected 35 semifinalists from nearly 300 newsroom-generated nominations and contacts, narrowed that list down to 25, and finally to the 10 Selected Startups for the Class of 2023: such an eager and well-prepared cohort of founders. for success, we are confident that they will dominate the conversation within the technology and innovation space in the coming months.
