Techstars apparently confirmed before the holidays that it is discontinuing its long-running Kansas City program.
In an article published in Startland News, the organization wrote that it “has made a strategic decision to focus on larger-growth markets, and therefore does not plan to add companies through a Kansas City program in the immediate future. Techstars Kansas City program alumni continue to drive innovation across various sectors and will continue to have deep links to Kansas City-based mentors and investors. “For our program alumni, Techstars is a lifelong relationship. Our founders will continue to benefit from the Techstars worldwide network, including access to mentors, and other events and opportunities we offer our network.”
