Student & Entrepreneur Sponsorships



BioKansas is passionate about helping our members reach their goals. One of the greatest challenges entrepreneurs face is access to capital. In order to poise innovative companies for growth and success in our region, BioKansas is funding travel awards for local entrepreneurs to attend pitch competitions and venture capital events around the country. As every company’s needs are unique, these travel awards provide support for entrepreneurs to attend the events most relevant to their particular field and stage in their lifecycle. 

 

BioKansas student sponsorships provide students with access to unique training opportunities of their choice while simultaneously promoting companies and career opportunities in our region. In addition to providing funding for student-driven professional development experiences, BioKansas is also providing one-day professional development symposia hosted at regional institutions to deliver content that educates and trains students on in-demand skill sets relevant to local employment opportunities. These interactions are framed through the lens of helping students establish and navigate career paths in the region.
