Business Development


Our team of extension specialists is dedicated to helping new and existing businesses succeed. Small businesses are responsible for two-thirds of national job growth (Small Business Administration).

We work with businesses of all sizes and help local governments use data to solve problems. We help families plan to transfer farms between generations. We help young people develop the skills to start and operate businesses to benefit Kansas communities. Our team can help improve your community through online and in-person education.
