The Incubator

MIC operates the MU Life Science Business Incubator at Monsanto Place, which offers biomedical and life science wet labs and engineering (including software) suites for startup companies. MIC counselors reside at the business incubator and offer ongoing mentoring services and technology commercialization assistance as described above.

The Mid-MO Tech Accelerator

In 2016 plans have begun for an addition to the LIfe Science Incubator that would provide space and facilities for over 20 new technology related start up companies through the Mid-MO Tech Accelerator. Our building has no vacancy already, so we need more space for companies that want to improve the world.
