The Kansas Department of Agriculture has partnered with the Kansas Department of Commerce to award funds to Kansas entrepreneurs in order to encourage innovation and entrepreneurial spirit within the agriculture industry.
Money will be awarded to Kansas-based individuals and companies toward the goal of creating new businesses. Proposed ideas must fall under one of these categories: entrepreneurial concepts or ideas, proof of concept, company growth opportunities or start-ups (not limited to first stage). The product or service must be innovative, whether it be a new idea, device, method or application of a better solution.
These funds are made available by the JumpStart Kansas Entrepreneur program. Application reviews will begin March 22.
