Uncovering Kansas tells the story of interesting people, places, events, and business in Kansas. We inspire Kansans to learn more about their state, and start conversations that bring us together.

Setting Kansas up to succeed in the future means diversifying into industries that have not traditionally been associated with our state. 

In today’s episode, you are going to learn about a Goodland company that is doing just that.

I like to highlight Kansas companies that are having an impact outside of Kansas. Today’s guest is not only doing that, but they are also working to change some of the fundamental issues that we are currently facing in Kansas. 

We are losing people to other states because of jobs.

We are unable to fill all of the jobs we have in Kansas because of lack of the correct skills.

We are in the process of transitioning into a state with a vibrant technology industry.

GoodlandTech is a Kansas company that is addressing all of these huge challenges at once with their business model. My guest today is Ben Coumerilh, one of the founders of Goodland Tech. I met Ben at the Ad Astra Technology conference back in September in Wichita and was grateful that he agreed to be a guest.

I always enjoy my conversations with our guests, but this one is really close to my heart because we talk about a topic I’m passionate about. I hope you enjoy it as well.
