Springfield Innovation, Inc.
Springfield Innovation, Inc. brings new applications and technology to the marketplace and facilitates the creation of new jobs in the region. How? We focus on supporting scientific and technology-based research and the commercialization of these products.
A MISSION COME TO LIFE
We’re a state-sponsored, nonprofit innovation center that was formed in 2006. We also propel the educational and research mission of Missouri State University forward.
Our mission comes to life in two university facilities: Jordan Valley Innovation Center and efactory. JVIC houses university researchers, as well as corporate partners, who are dedicated to the mission of product development through intensive research, development, and advanced manufacturing.
Meanwhile, efactory serves businesses across the spectrum through talent development and business support services. Business tenants in the incubator spaces focus on manufacturing, medical device and health services, logistics and supply chain management, and technology.
