Welcome to the
Kansas Small Business Development Center (KSBDC)
"Growing Kansas Entrepreneurs" is the focus of the KSBDC.
Who we help
We assist established firms, growth companies, and start-up enterprises as they meet head on with the challenges of today's evolving global marketplace.
How we help
We assist by providing high-quality, one-on-one business management consulting as well as educational programs and training. Our consulting and training is delivered in the form of practical information and advice to small businesses across the state.
Where we help
Eight regional KSBDC centers and eleven outreach centers provide a complete network of on-the-ground and online resources to sustain and grow the Kansas economy.
To offer Kansas entrepreneurs the most comprehensive services available, the KSBDC partners with a diverse group of organizations including universities, community colleges, chambers of commerce, financial institutions, cities, counties, other government agencies, and private enterprise. We work in sync with our partners to provide the right resources to you at the right time. This open communication delivers better assistance, better results, and a non-duplication of efforts and resources.
Free consulting is made possible by partner funding. At the federal level, the KSBDC is funded in part by the US Small Business Administration (SBA). At the state level, the KSBDC is funded in part by the Kansas Dept. of Commerce. Kansas universities, community colleges, city and county governments, economic development entities, and private enterprise round out funding, making it possible to provide free consulting and low- or no-cost workshops, training, and entrepreneurial education.
