Mississippi State University’s Business Incubator provides startups and other early stage companies with infrastructure, community, and resources designed to help them build stable, fast-growing businesses. Completed in September of 2012, the incubator encompasses 10,000 sqft, including 10 private office spaces, coworking space, shared conference and multimedia room, and copy/break room. It also has an onsite cafe serving breakfast and lunch daily. Our team admits from all industries, but focuses on scalable technology businesses first and foremost.
Tenants of the incubator are mentored by the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in partnership with the MSU Small Business Development Center and complete a tailored program designed to help accepted entrepreneurs establish milestones to measure their success and growth through continual guidance. Incubator clients are coached during their occupancy by our experienced advisory board and mentors, and encouraged to form strategic partnerships with other tenants.
The MSU Business Incubator offers flexible leasing terms and reduced rent to help transition new businesses to standard market price as they grow. All rates and terms are subject to change.
