70-plus Kansas City-area startups to follow on Twitter

In anticipation of our Silicon Prairie Awards next month, this week we're highlighting the software, Internet and mobile startups that call our region home.

In anticipation of our Silicon Prairie Awards next month, this week we’re highlighting the software, Internet and mobile startups that call our region home. Today we round out the series with a look at Kansas City-area startups. (Check out our Nebraska and Iowa startup lists.)

With these lists, we hope you’ll take time to learn more about the region’s startups, give them a follow on Twitter and, of course, nominate them for a Silicon Prairie Award.

On these lists, however, you won’t find companies we now view as established, such as Adknowledge, Infegy and Netchemia. It’s a constant back and forth in our newsroom to decide on a one-size-fits-all definition of “startup,” and though we haven’t come to a decisive conclusion, we do aim to continue highlighting new, early-stage companies. We hope this focused list helps that cause.

We’re confident we included most of the Kansas City and Columbia, Mo., startups below, but we’re also undoubtedly sure we’ve missed some along the way. To suggest an addition, please contact editor@siliconprairienews.com.

Nominate: Submit nominations for all 12 categories of the Silicon Prairie Awards. What company below is deserving of Startup of the Year or Mobile App of the Year? Or which founder deserves Startup Executive of the Year? You tell us—nominations are open through Sunday.

Join us: Tickets are on sale now for our annual community celebration.
