I.D.E.A. Program: Growing Wichita One Business Expansion at a Time

It’s established fact that more than 80% of a community’s growth comes from the expansion of its existing businesses. We established our Industry Development & Expansion Assistance (IDEA) Program to facilitate that growth. The IDEA Program is a free and confidential consultation service provided by seasoned economic development professionals. 

Our first priority is to learn more about your business - what impediments are slowing your progress; what new innovations are on the horizon that will be a catalyst for job creation?  What transportation solutions would improve your business? Our consultants can connect you with a wide range of incentive programs that can help with expansion costs for everything from property and equipment to training and research. 

Millions of dollars are available each year to help fund growth. Since 2004, We have put more than $1 billion to work for area businesses like Learjet, Cargill and NetApp. We look forward to the opportunity to help with your next business expansion, too.
