University of Kansas officials and state government leaders broke ground today (FRI) to expand a business incubator. The Bioscience & Technology Business Center on the KU campus helps partner university researchers with private-sector companies, and it fosters new companies. The goal is creating economic growth. Governor Sam Brownback says Kansas will be fighting for jobs in the future, and he says the state should work to attract high-skill, high-wage jobs.
The Bioscience & Technology Business Center was opened in 2010. It filled up more quickly than planned, prompting the expansion. The new wing of the facility is slated to open in 2014.
