Business development

We believe in Kansas City

In today's global economy, companies have more and more location options. As America’s crossroads, Kansas City, Missouri offers strategic advantages unlike any other city. Learn more about what KCMO has to offer.

Facilitating a Strong Business Climate

At EDCKC, our Business Development Team’s primary focus areas are industry business attraction, site selection, strategic business retention, and business expansion programs. Each of our Business Development Officers specialize in a different industry and part of the city. Each year, we meet with hundreds of local businesses to help them grow. This can take many forms, including connecting them to City resources, networking introductions, finding the right workforce development programs, and much more.

Meeting with your Business Development Officer can create opportunities that you may not have imagined. Creating paths to prosperity is our daily goal.

Using a holistic approach to economic development through the AdvanceKC initiative, the EDCKC Business Development Team strategically focuses on select industries to leverage KCMO’s many competitive advantages. These target industries include:
