Hear from Us

Here’s what our staff says about our work. All responses were collected anonymously by the KC Business Journal’s Best Places to Work survey.

“Port KC is easily and deservedly the best organization I’ve ever worked for. The leadership  is supremely focused on Port KC’s mission in such a way that is provoking, inspirational, and unusual  for the modern workplace. The work we do has direct and relevant impact both locally and  nationally.”

“Everyone at Port KC is highly dedicated to their work and doing their best work for Kansas  City…The passion, integrity, and overall quality of people who work at Port KC is incredible.”

“Port KC is both a very collaborative atmosphere where you are part of a multi-talented  team as well as great autonomy…The mission to grow Kansas City is part of everything we do and is  very impactful and provides great satisfaction in making a difference.”

Port KC for KC

Through our time, expertise, and financial support, we are committed to giving back to our community as both an organization and as individual staff members.

From large to small, we support almost 40 non-profit organizations in our city including the NeXt Stage KC minority and women entrepreneur training program and the COVID-19 Small Business Relief Fund.

We offer paid time off for community service and Election Days. All of our staff volunteers in the community, and many additionally serve on community boards or as volunteer community advisors.
