Knowledge Based Economic Development (KBED) is a partnership between Kansas State University, the KSU Foundation, the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce, the North Central Kansas Community Network, the Kansas State University Institute for Commercialization, and the City of Manhattan to support new and growing companies in the Manhattan area. 

KBED wanted a compelling, fast-paced video for online use to excite viewers about relocating their home or business to the Manhattan area. The video highlights Manhattan’s quality of place (schools, parks and recreation, shopping and entertainment, and housing options), local employers, area attractions, and overall way of life. The project includes some on-campus footage provided by K-State’s Division of Communications and Marketing, and K-State Athletics.
