The Business Council kickstarts three Wyoming companies
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Three Wyoming startups received $170,000 in January from two Wyoming Business Council grant programs.
This money provides the potential for the creation of 21 to 35 jobs in the next three years.
The two programs, called Kickstart:Wyoming and SBIR Matching, are developed from economic diversification legislation passed in the 2018 Wyoming Legislature. This is one of several bills created based on recommendations from the Economically Needed Diversification Options for Wyoming executive council.
Kickstart:Wyoming provides $5,000 to $50,000 grants to Wyoming startups with a globally unique product or service, fewer than 50 employees and a scalable business plan targeting a massive market.
