The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation congratulates Kansas City, Kansas, for being Google's first selected city to bring the company’s ultra high-speed broadband network to a community. The Foundation is eager to work closely with the city and Google to help the community show the world what is possible when you have access to an Internet 100 times faster than currently available.
"The Kauffman Foundation is enthusiastically supportive of Google’s initiative to bring a super high-speed broadband network to the Kansas City metro area," said Carl Schramm, Kauffman's president and CEO. "This experimental technology promises limitless possibilities for the innovators who now have the opportunity to pioneer a whole new future for not just our area, but the world. As a hub to entrepreneurs and innovators, the Kauffman Foundation’s goal is to support and facilitate innovative thinking that drives development of high-growth businesses, which create jobs and economic growth while solving some of society’s biggest challenges. Google’s high-speed network will greatly enhance the incubation of innovative entrepreneurial ideas and applications that will transform lives."
