Ten business start-ups in Kansas will get help and resources this summer from a program at Kansas State University that seeks to help create jobs.

In the K-State Launch a Business program, the businesses, which have been chosen from several parts of the state, will get help from resources, faculty-led courses and hands-on student research teams, as well as K-State’s alumni mentor network, the university said in a prepared statement.

The program, from the College of Business Administration, targets early stage start-ups, the statement said. The courses and program will take place from July 10 to Aug. 8. One start-up will be picked to receive cash and in-kind resources valued at more than $50,000, the statement said.
