Kansas City University Venture Fund


News Room

How We Invest

Disruptive Tech

We look for businesses, primarily software-focused, that are tackling big problems across a number of industries. We like companies making a positive social impact, and we stay away from markets that are highly-capital intensive and that we aren’t familiar with.

Midwest Focused

As a Kansas City-based fund, we prefer investments in Missouri and neighboring states. We understand the challenges facing traditionally underserved venture markets, and we want to fill that need.

Strong Teams

Starting and running a company is hard – that’s why we bet on talented, driven teams of entrepreneurs that understand what it takes to scale a business.

We Can Help

As a diverse group of talented university students, we offer a unique value proposition to founders. As such, we prefer businesses that utilize our services to help take them to the next level.
