STARKVILLE — Mississippi State University’s College of Business is receiving an additional $650,000 grant to leverage university resources for economic development.
The award from the federal Economic Development Administration will enable the university to continue housing a University Center, an entity designed as a resource for entrepreneurs in rural areas. This grant comes on the heels of an additional $1.065 million awarded to MSU and announced by the White House last week to stimulate jobs in the rural Delta and Appalachian counties.
The University Center will partner with the Venture Incubator, a non-profit organization in Jackson, to meet entrepreneurial needs by taking training to people in rural areas rather than requiring them to come to the campus to benefit from university resources.
