Encouraging Student Inventors and Entrepreneurs

The mission of Missouri S&T and the University of Missouri System includes economic development. In a note to the University community on his first day, University of Missouri System President Gary Forsee highlighted the need for the University to encourage entrepreneurship as part of its efforts to serve as an economic growth engine for the state. The Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development is leading efforts to encourage and support student entrepreneurs at Missouri S&T. Our hope is that some of the businesses started by students will continue to grow and prosper beyond the campus environment. Even if students' businesses don’t survive beyond their time at the University, the educational experience from starting and running a business will be extremely valuable to students in their professional careers.
