Department Overview

The Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development (TTED) serves as the focal point for technology commercialization, entrepreneurship, business development, and economic development for Missouri S&T. Our mission is to grow Missouri's economy by advancing technology commercialization, encouraging entrepreneurship, and promoting business opportunities. We provide information and data used for policy-making and administer policies, programs, and projects that raise the standard of living in the Rolla region and the state of Missouri. Our goal is to identify and leverage new economic opportunities and retain business wealth within the community.

The value of an idea lies in the using of it.
