Minority & Women Business Spotlight

Thank you for your interest in our Minority and Women Business Spotlight.

The purpose for the spotlight is to highlight Kansas small, minority and women-owned businesses.

To be eligible for the spotlight you must be a small, minority and/or woman-owned business headquartered in Kansas

You do not need to be certified as a Minority or Woman Business to be featured, however, a woman and/or minority must own and control at least 51% of the company. You must also meet the small business size standard as issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Want to be featured? Be creative and tell us your story! The more details the better. Complete and submit the form.
