There are 59,667 business establishments in the state of Kansas, and they break down to the following:

Starting and managing a small business in Kansas is not an easy task. Over $42,146,866,000.00 US dollars are paid to employee salaries/payroll alone in the state of Kansas and more than 11,382 businesses declare bankruptcy every single year. Although the federal government does not publically provide grants for starting and expanding a business, in Kansas, some small business grants are given to business owners to start and grow their ventures, and grant recipients do not have to pay back the funding from government. Therefore, it makes sense to look into small business grants as one of your sources to fund your business.
