Our new facility will allow us to add dozens of employees as we continue to develop our business. We have already grown over 250% since our first year back in 2017 and don’t plan to slow down anytime soon.

Leverage Lab announces today that it has received a loan from LoanUp, one of the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri (EDCKC)’s strategic initiative programs. The company, which has doubled its revenues this year, plans to use the funds to build out a new corporate headquarters in Kansas City’s Midtown area.

“Our new corporate headquarters will allow us to continue our phenomenal growth, provide a modern environment for our employees, and a great place for us to meet clients in the heart of the city,” says Leverage Lab CEO AnnMarie Wills. “Kansas City is our home and we are excited to add our company to the growing Midtown business community.”

“We believe successful economic development happens across all scales, at an individual level, up to large, city-wide efforts,” said EDCKC Senior Vice President & CAO, T’Risa McCord. “Leverage Lab’s future growth is a great example of how our LoanUp program is supporting and strengthening the community at a grassroots level,” she continues.

“We are extremely grateful for EDCKC. Their loan programs are flexible, and their staff made the application and funding process easy and painless,” says Wills. “Our new facility will allow us to add dozens of employees as we continue to develop our business. We have already grown over 250% since our first year back in 2017 and don’t plan to slow down anytime soon.”
