Topeka, Kan. – The Women and Minority Business Development office of the Kansas Department of Commerce announces the start of the Minority and Women Business Spotlight program.

The purpose for the program is to highlight Kansas small, minority and women-owned businesses. To be eligible, applicants must be small, minority and/or woman owned businesses headquartered in Kansas.

Every month, one business will be selected for the Spotlight. That business will be featured on Kansas Commerce social media and KansasCommerce.gov. The selected company will be featured in an article on KansasCentral.com.

“It is our goal to feature Kansas minority and/or women-owned businesses through our spotlight to assist in their growth and development,” said Rhonda Harris, Director of the Office of Minority and Women Business Development for the Kansas Department of Commerce. “By bringing awareness to these companies and the services and products they provide, we hope to promote a broader outreach to potential customers that may be able to utilize the services offered.” 

Applications can be filled out online at https://www.kansascommerce.gov/FormCenter/MWBD-Spotlight-Nomination-Form-31/Nomination-Form-81

The first business to be highlighted is Camo Cross Dog Training in Topeka, KS. The feature can be found at https://www.kansascommerce.gov/1205/Camo-Cross-Dog-Training
