SBA ‘cluster’ program supporting EIGS
JACKSON — SBA Administrator Karen Mills announced the U.S. Small Business Administration’s support for 10 regional economic development and job creation efforts through a new pilot program, “Innovative Economies.”
One of those 10 is located in Mississippi.
The pilot program supports small businesses participation in regional economic “clusters” – collaborations between small businesses, the public sector, economic development and other organizations.
The Jackson-based Magnolia Business Alliance for the Enterprise for Innovative Geospatial Solutions is one of the selected clusters. EIGS organizes complimentary geospatial businesses, government agencies, and educational institutions in Mississippi and the Louisiana Gulf Coast to help create a trained workforce, transfer geospatial technology from public institutions into the market, and foster new business growth.
