New high-tech IT startup Fishtech Labs investing $10.2 million in Kansas City, creating 50 jobs


Gov. Jay Nixon today announced that a new startup, Fishtech Labs LLC, is investing $10.2 million in a headquarters facility in the Martin City area of south Kansas City, where it will create 50 new, high-paying jobs.

The high tech company’s investment will help build and equip a facility that will house its back office operations, technology labs and an executive briefing center to showcase next-generation cloud security solutions. The company’s focus will be on helping organizations securely migrate to the cloud by investing in, testing, and identifying emerging technology solutions.
To assist in the startup of Fishtech Labs, the Missouri Department of Economic Development has offered a strategic economic incentive package that the company can receive if it meets strict job creation criteria.
