KU Site Helps Students With Business Startups

KSAL StaffFebruary 1, 2014

Students at the University of Kansas will be able to bring their startup ideas to a new university-run business accelerator.

The new program, KU Catalyst, is a joint project between the School of Business and the Bioscience and Technology Business Center. It will seek to connect students with mentoring, workspace and capital to start new companies.

KU Catalyst will open in the BTBC next month, but its ultimate home will be the new business school building, which is scheduled to open in the 2015-16 school year.

Entrepreneurship faculty offices will also be built near the accelerator workspace so students can have easy access to mentors.
