The spirit of leadership was in the air on Tuesday night for the culmination of Kansas’ Business Appreciation Month at the Kansas State University Alumni Center in Manhattan, Kansas. Hosted by Governor Sam Brownback, the event showcased dozens of the state’s top businesses and entrepreneurs for a night of networking and awards. NetStandard joined companies from across the state as a state-wide finalist and regional winner for the Kansas Governor’s Award of Excellence.
2012 marked the second time in under five years and during two administrations that NetStandard has been named as a finalist for the state’s most prestigious business award. This year, NetStandard was selected as a finalist, along with five other companies, from a pool of 119 businesses in the state. NetStandard was the only company from Kansas City, Kansas to reach the finals.
