New Program From Archer Foundation Supports Kansas City Startups

By Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global

According to Silicon Prairie News, a new immersion program launched Oct. 1, 2013 by the Archer Foundation has been helping Kansas City tech-focused startups.

The Archer Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Leawood, Kan., began Get Started to help expand and strengthen businesses in the Kansas City area. The businesses taking part in the program are in early stages of development, and many of its entrepreneurs are first-timers.

Jeff Glasco, vice president of entrepreneurial services at the Archer Foundation, said, “One thing I think is unique is that we not only focus on the specifics problems that entrepreneurs have, but the program is like having this steady flow of support, just when the company needs it. People come into our workspace and start building their company, and as they grow and things come up, they can use our team’s support and resources to solve that problem as soon as possible.”

Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global, said, “This is a great boon to the Kansas City start-up scene. We’ve enjoyed collaborating with the Archer Foundation in the past as we will in the future on serving software-based start-up companies. With the outstanding guidance and support offered by Jeff and his team, start-ups who are able to take advantage of this program will have a dramatically higher chance of succeeding.”

Kansas City startups interested in getting started with Get Started can apply online.
