Purpose of the program

StartUp Kansas provides gap financing to help entrepreneurs start or grow a business in Kansas.  The loan program matches other public sources of capital, is flexible, and provides immediate connection to a statewide network of additional technical and financial resources to support the business. 

Use of Funds

For-profit businesses in any industry that have a physical address within the State of Kansas can apply for funding.  Funds can be used for a variety of purposes including equipment, inventory, and working capital.


  • Flexible and attractive loan terms that can match partner terms
