University of Kansas’ RedTire: Linking Graduate Students with Alumni

University of Kansas’ RedTire initiative was developed to help link graduate students and alumni with struggling, local small/medium-sized businesses to prevent shuttering with ensuing loss of community services and tax base. Through this collaborative effort, businesses are able to receive support and mentorship to grow the business and employ more fellow Kansans.
