What Investors are Saying.

Why Invest in Hype?

Hype is a program of the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce that is designed to help engage our community’s young professional workforce. Nearly 50% of our local population is made up of millennials. That is more than any other city in the state of Kansas. We believe that by creating opportunities for young professionals to come together over similar interests, hobbies, or aspirations, we can play a key part in enhancing a young professional’s sense of place and quality of life.

What do Investors Receive?

All investors receive free membership for their YP employees. This benefit enables all of your young professional workforce to attend Hype events for free or at a significantly discounted rate. In addition, investors receive recognition throughout the year on our website, at our annual meeting and throughout the year at select events.
