We want to see a thriving Kansas future.

Our mission as Flagship is to propel the tech sector within the state through continuous efforts in awareness, education, and the workforce.

Why Kansas.

Kansas is known for its aerospace industry, health care, and agriculture. But there’s a fourth sector, a quiet innovator: technology. It’s the focus of entire companies plus it enables the growth of every other industry. Tech stakes a claim on the Kansas landscape.

History

All systems go.

Flagship was formed in 2018 by Kansas tech companies to help address key issues for Kansas tech.

Kansas has proven it has the makings of a tech hub. But misconceptions about our area threaten to stunt growth. Flagship was built to channel Kansas tech’s collective energy to make our voice heard, our impact felt, and change happen where it’s needed.

Founding Members

Raise the standard.

Kansas is poised to succeed wildly in tech just as soon as we have the courage to go all in. Join us. And be there when we shock the coasts.
