Companies will be drawn to Wichita, says Ken Russell, as Wichita State University continues to build its focus on innovation and technology transfer. Russell will play a role in WSU’s transformation. He’s the incoming director of  the university’s planned new networking, data storage and software research center.

Startup Weekend returns to Wichita next month
Startup Weekend, the build-a-business-in-54-hours event, is returning to Wichita May 30 through June 1. This is the third time Wichita has hosted a Startup Weekend. At the two events held last year, developers, designers, business experts and others gathered to create business concepts ranging from a service that delivers the groceries needed for new recipes to a platform that helps drivers arrange to have their oil changed while they’re at work. While most of the businesses hatched at past Startup…
K-TAG/Pike Pass interoperability part of larger push toward electronic tolling
By the end of the year, drivers who have the Kansas Turnpike Authority’s K-TAG will be able to use it on the Oklahoma Turnpike toll road system and vice versa. But Kansas Secretary of Transportation Mike King says the state’s plans extend beyond interoperability with a single state. King says the Kansas/Oklahoma agreement is part of a nationwide push by turnpike systems toward an interoperable electronic tolling system. For now, the move extends several benefits K-TAG users have in Kansas to…
Wichita native’s Cinema & Spice web show up for a Webby
It can be hard for someone aspiring to a film career to find a steady stream of fulfilling projects to work on, says Julianna Strickland, who grew up in Wichita and now lives in Los Angeles. So she and a few friends decided to create their own. It was just a fun side project at first — there was no money — but now, Cinema & Spice is syndicated by Yahoo and  up for a Webby Award against the likes of shows by chef Mario Batali and the magazine GQ.  Cinema & Spice is a cooking show inspired…
Wichita State hires director for new networking, data storage and software center
Wichita State University has hired a director from Cisco Systems to lead the university’s effort to establish a new networking, data storage and software research center. Ken Russell, director of intellectual capital and an organizational strategist at Cisco Systems, will begin work in May as the executive director of the center.

Fewer Kansans started businesses in 2013
Entrepreneurial activity in Kansas has been slowing down over the past two years, according to a new report from the Kauffman Foundation that analyzes Census data. The foundation’s Kauffman Index of Entrepreneurial Activity was at 0.18 for Kansas in 2013, which means that in each month of 2013, an average of 0.18 percent of Kansans started a new business. In other words, for every 100,000 people in the state, 180 were starting a new business each month. Kansas has a population of about 2.9 million,…
Report: Networking, revenue keys in raising startup funding on the Silicon Prairie
How do tech startups in the Great Plains states raise capital? Even as the startup culture in Wichita and other nearby cities grows more robust, it hasn’t always been easy to answer that question. National reports on venture capital and angel investors often gloss over the Plains states, and even reports with a regional breakdown tend to focus more on areas where investments are the biggest — usually, not in Kansas. It’s refreshing to see, then, a  first attempt by the blog Silicon Prairie…
Mentoring Monday offers advice, inspiration for women entrepreneurs
The Wichita Business Journal’s Mentoring Monday event drew nearly 300 women together Monday morning, including more than 40 mentors, for frank conversations about careers, personal growth and other issues. And while the event appeared to benefit women in all sectors and career stages, it seemed to me to offer lessons that are especially important for women who work in male-dominated fields like science, technology and engineering, and those who are starting their own businesses. Much of Monday’s…
Wichita State plans $34M building for Innovation Campus
Wichita State University plans to construct a more than $34 million facility in the first phase of its Innovation Campus. The 160,000-square-foot building will be the first of five separate buildings that are planned for the campus, which will be built on the southeast portion of Wichita State’s campus  where the Wheatshocker Apartments are now.   Creating the Innovation Campus is part of Wichita State President John Bardo’s vision for expanding the university and its capabilities. The central…
Bedside TV, Skype, records access part of Wesley Medical renovation
Technology in newly renovated women’s care rooms at Wesley Medical Center will let new moms watch movies, video chat with grandma or check up on their own medical records without leaving bed. Wesley cut the ribbon Wednesday on the first phase of its $36 million women’s care renovation. In the first phase, Wesley updated 33 postpartum and antepartum rooms. The update included installation of the LINC Technology platform from Nashville-based Lincor, which hospital leaders say will provide entertainment,…
