Working with Innovate Mississippi, when I was at Mississippi State University, we were able to better utilize our skills to assist Mississippi companies by being able to connect with Innovate Mississippi’s client pool. This ended up being a huge win for all parties. Hence, Mississippi’s economy grew along with its reputation for being a place where innovation happens.”Dr. Mark E.
