Membership FAQs
Is the number of employees based on our local presence or the whole company?

For all companies considered for membership, the employee count is for the total number of employees in the company.

What are the qualifications for a Startup membership?

The Startup membership is for companies that have been in business for less than two years and have less than 25 employees. Those who qualify will receive a 2-year free membership. After 2 years, Startup companies will have the option of joining at one of our other membership levels.

How do I pay for the membership?

When submitting the membership application, you’ll have the option to pay with a card or receive an invoice. Invoices can be paid by mailing a check or online with a card. A membership renewal invoice will be issued annually during your renewal month.

Do you have an individual membership option?

At this time we don’t have a KTech-wide individual membership. However, our Women in Tech group has an individual membership option.
