Background on Awards Program and 25 Under 25® Winners

The 25 Under 25® program has honored 375 Kansas City small businesses since the first class was recognized in February 2002. Throughout the 15-year history of the program, the companies have averaged 12 years in business, 12 employees, and more that $2.5 million in annual revenues at the time they won the award.

Every year at the 25 Under 25 ® Awards Dinner and Gala, we also present the Entrepreneurial Legacy Award to an individual who has made enduring contributions to the entrepreneurial community.
