KidStrong

KidStrong is a comprehensive “whole child” empowerment program that focuses on the athletic, mental, and personal development of children, up to 10 years of age. Its CEO, Matt Sharp, founded his startup company in 2015 in Lexington, KY, but selected Frisco for the company’s headquarters, and today, has seven studios in Texas, as well as locations in California, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Ohio. Sharp has received numerous accolades, including “2019 Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce.

We believed in Frisco so much we sold our house, car, and donated half of our belongings to a refugee family. Then we packed up three small children and moved to Frisco to build KidStrong WHQ. Frisco is like Silicon Valley for a family business like KidStrong. It’s an amazing confluence of family demographics and entrepreneurial energy and ecosystem.
