About My Business:


The Small Business & Technology Development Center in Cole County is part of the University of Missouri Extension program. The goal of the Missouri MO SBTDCs is to assist entrepreneurs, with pre-venture, start-up or existing business issues including financial management, marketing, technology, product development and commercialization. Our objectives are to: • Provide technical assistance to businesses and faculty. • Help entrepreneurs create companies, jobs, investments and profits. • Help faculty attract research dollars to MU, including Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer awards. • Assist businesses in winning government contracts. • Provide technology and economic value to businesses in Missouri by facilitating knowledge transfer between faculty and businesses. We offer University expertise to help start, grow or reposition companies. That expertise may take the form of a business management counselor assessing an operation to provide suggestions for improvement, an entrepreneurial expert helping acquire financing to execute a client’s business plan or continue research, a procurement specialist aiding an entrepreneur in selling goods and services to the government or a student team taking on a special project to address a specific need. We help companies develop options, identify solutions, obtain resources, refine ideas and ultimately achieve success. Specially trained business specialists focus on strengthening the technological competitiveness of Missouri’s businesses. Designed to help firms commercialize new technology, the MO SBTDC encourages and enhances technology research and development, technology transfer and deployment. One of the primary services of the MO SBTDC is MoFAST, which provides services to businesses interested in participating in the SBIR/STTR program. Services are provided via individualized consultations with a business management counselor or through educational sessions on a wide variety of topics.
