We love startups and we love Kansas City.
So, we started CEED and we’re committed to:
Who are we?
We are the Center of Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Development, but everybody calls us CEED.
It’s a bit easier to say, and who doesn’t love a good nickname?
We activate entrepreneurs.
Increasing awareness of entrepreneurship for people, organizations, and companies who are new to or interested in this world.
Exposing students to the world of entrepreneurship and providing opportunities to engage entrepreneurs and practice entrepreneurial skills.
Building easy entry points for engagement with the entrepreneurial community.
Generating momentum for early-stage startups who are just getting off the ground.
What do we do?
The CEED team brings together expertise and experience in community building, entrepreneurship, journalism, and student engagement — basically, all the areas we touch with CEED. How convenient!

Careers at CEED
Finding team members that fit our company culture is extremely important to us!
We are building a team of walking oxymorons: Stubborn people who know how to be flexible and bend when necessary. Folks who are smart as hell, but occasionally (accidentally) walk into a screen door and know how to laugh about it.
To join us, you must be serious, but not take yourself too seriously. You must be humble, but we expect you to bring a level of expertise and value-add that is unmatched. Be unashamedly you, but be willing to change and learn and grow. Most importantly, you must be passionate. Passion drives our efforts, and it must drive the individual members of our team as well.
Added bonus attributes for our ideal teammates:
- Lover of car dancing
- Fluent in sarcasm
We aren’t currently hiring for any positions, but when we are, we will post them here.
