2017 Annual Meeting

Building a Venture Capital Backed Startup in America's Heartland



This is one that you won't want to miss! Our keynote speaker is Chris Costello, CEO & Co-Founder of blooom.

blooom (yes, we left off the capital "b" and put in the extra "o" on purpose) is one of the nation's fastest growing robo-advisors and just passed 1 billion dollars in assets under management. Chris and his company are often in the news, and are based right here in Leawood in Park Place.

"... Leawood-based financial tech firm has reached $1 billion in assets under management, becoming the fastest, independent robo advisor to pass that threshold" ... Startland News 

"Leawood startup's co-founder makes Upstart 100"... Kansas City Business Journal

We are celebrating a great year and will look forward to the things in store for 2018. We'll also recognize our 2017 Hall of Fame Award recipients, and acknowledge some of our friends and community partners who have volunteered their time to help the Leawood Chamber deliver "Business Personalized" to our over 500 member businesses.
