Kansas Angel Investor Tax Credit Program

The KAITC Program is administered by the Kansas Department of Commerce (KDC) and designed to bring together accredited angel investors with qualified Kansas companies seeking early stage investment. The “Kansas Angels” program helps provide access to capital for Kansas start-ups.” 

“The Angel program exists to support small start-up businesses […] we hope it will encourage more start-ups to apply and make it easier for Kansans to invest in promising new businesses.”
