Why Black & Veatch

Benefits of partnership with a global infrastructure provider include:

  • In-kind engineering services (ex. front-end design, technical due diligence, co-development and testing, and procurement support). These services are invaluable for demonstrating feasibility of early-stage technologies and qualifying for further investment.
  • A proven channel partner for going to market. Our portfolio of thousands of projects across the world results in a vast network of contacts for rapid scale.

Time in Market

We (and our partners at LaunchKC) want to roll out the red carpet to provide you access to the vast resources available to entrepreneurs in KC! We will work together to help you balance the benefits of the KC ecosystem with other opportunities around the globe. We hope you’ll like what you see and continue your engagement with the KC ecosystem long after our demo day in November!

Equity Awards

One size does not fit all. We expect awards to begin at $50,000 cash in exchange for ~3% equity. We’ll be using a SAFE agreement and are flexible to meet valuation levels appropriate for stage of development. In-kind support will be provided on top of cash awards. Our objective is to align our teams around a common goal and mutual success.
