Great! We have a specific Corporate Accelerator FAQ aimed to answer most of your questions.
You will enter our building via one of two main entrances to One Kansas City Place (1200 Main St). These entrances are located on Main St and Baltimore Ave. After hours and weekends, please use the Baltimore entrance.
The Sprint Accelerator hosts a wide variety of programming and events, which take place during the weekdays, evenings and even some weekends. Therefore to allow for setup and consistency, the standard office hours are 9:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
Our space is located in downtown KC. If you are driving, there are a lot of parking options in the area. You can find both street parking and parking garages readily available. All parking garages require payment, including the garage at One Kansas City place, so remember to plan accordingly. Also, remember to pay attention to parking signs and monitor your time accordingly.

The Sprint Accelerator hosts hundreds of meetings, programs and events each year – over 350 per year, in fact, focusing around entrepreneurship & technology. Although not all are open to the public, a lot of them are. In addition to our programming, we partner with great local resource organizations and community organizers to bring the KC community educational, engaging & fun workshops, speakers and events.

Are the mentors for The Mentor Network 6-month program the same as the mentors for the Corporate Accelerator program?
Not necessarily. The mentors who are a part of the 6-month Mentor Network program are Director and above level executives from area corporations who are paired with a local startup founder for mentorship and cultural exchange (corporate and new venture). They can also be a mentor for the Corporate Accelerator program if the vertical applies. However, the Corporate Accelerator program has many mentors outside of corporate executives.
I'd like to explore holding an event at the Sprint Accelerator. How do I go about renting your space?
Great! We reserve our rooms on a first come, first serve basis when the space is available and the event/program aligns with the vision of the Sprint Accelerator.
