In the past few years, Wichita has become an increasingly popular destination for entrepreneurs. A new study by Kauffman Foundation shows that from 2007-2011, more than 150 startups were created per 100,000 people in Wichita–that’s four times as many as Silicon Valley.
By 2020 it is estimated there will be over 220 startup firms with greater than 500 employees and bring $30 billion to the economy of Wichita. This is great news not only for aspiring entrepreneurs but also for local businesses who can benefit greatly form this sort of entrepreneurship boom!
The Mayor says “It’s a win/win situation.”
