The Entrepreneur Center @ Mississippi Development Authority

The mission of The Entrepreneur Center @ Mississippi Development Authority (TEC) is to develop an ecosystem within the state that promotes organic entrepreneurial and innovative development and attracts innovative start-up companies from outside the state. Located in Jackson, TEC’s key role is to facilitate coordinated interactions with entrepreneurs, research universities, state and federal agencies, existing industry and non-profit organizations to develop the most successful entrepreneurial ecosystem possible.

In 2020, TEC conducted 23 workshops in Jackson, with 30 percent held virtually via Zoom or Microsoft Team. The TEC team also hosted five webinars, three of which involved our SCORE partner. Topics included “Simple Steps to Starting a Business”, “Financing & Marketing Concepts” and “Business Practices During COVID-19”.
