Addition to foster growth for local entrepreneurs and early-stage companies
October 14, 2015, Kansas City, Mo — C2FO, the world’s market for working capital®, today announced it has expanded its headquarters to create a public, collaborative space for the Kansas City area tech and entrepreneur communities.
The addition nearly doubles the company’s footprint (20,000 square feet) for its Kansas City headquarters and will provide entrepreneurs with companies in the early stages of growth and development a wide range of assistance, including no-cost space, shared support and business development services.
The new space will also serve as a venue for local entrepreneurs and organizations to host meetings and facilitate discussions that help foster a culture of innovation, ingenuity, job creation and diversification of the economic base in the Kansas City metro area. In addition, those early stage companies will have access to some of the world’s best financial technology minds and engineering professionals to help work through business and coding applications and challenges.
Sandy Kemper, Chairman and CEO of C2FO says, “This space will allow C2FO to partner with individuals and companies, especially those in the technology sector, to work together in an open environment.”
An open house to celebrate the opening of the space will begin at 4:00pm on October 15 on the third floor of the company’s headquarters at 4210 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Fairway, Kansas. Guests will be invited to tour the space and visit with company leadership.
The inaugural event in the new space, directly following the open house, will feature a distinguished panel of entrepreneurial thought leaders, hosted by the Athena League of KC, an organization that fosters early-stage and established female entrepreneurs. Guest panel members include Pradyumna Agrawal, director at Temasek, a global investment company that owns and manages a net portfolio of S$266 billion; Darcy Howe, wealth advisor, angel investor and member of three private company boards; Richard Chino, start-up veteran and C2FO board member; and Laura Brady, President and CEO of Medical Positioning Inc. (MPI).
