Technology Transfer

The MSBDC State Office can connect the world of public and private sector research to the world of business. Tell us what your technology needs are and we will locate the university or government agency that has or is developing that technology. Many federal agencies are interested in financing the development and commercialization of emerging technologies. MSBDC can also assist small businesses in locating the technology or technical assistance required to improve your business and make it more competitive. Often technical assistance is available at no cost to the small business.

For information and assistance, call 1-800-725-7232 or e-mail: inventor@olemiss.edu.

MSBDC State Office is your connection for Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) information.
