About Kansas City

From its early trading post beginnings, Kansas City has grown to be a metropolitan area of 2.2 million people, and includes cities in Missouri and Kansas. Located near the geographic and population centers of the US, it truly is the "Heart of America." This asset has helped Kansas City maintain its reputation as a crossroads of transportation and as an international trade hub.

Fortune magazine ranks Kansas City as one of the 20 best cities in the USA for international business.

Kansas City has a vibrant and diversified economy, with a wealth of small and medium size businesses. There are also 10 Fortune 1000 companies headquartered in the KC region, and more than 25 Fortune 500 companies have a significant presence here. Some of the most recognized household brands make their home in KC – Hallmark Cards, H&R Block, Lee Jeans and Sprint-Nextel.

Kansas City’s economy is a nearly exact reflection of the U.S. economy. This means that our economy doesn’t hinge on one or two industries. Our employers and workforce are protected from dramatic peaks and valleys experienced by other markets.

Entrepreneur Magazine rates KC as the No.1 city in the Midwest in which to start and grow a business and No. 11 nationally. Its metro area has been named fifth for business opportunities by Expansion Management. KC is also a "Top Major Market for business development" according to Southern Business & Development.
