Mission of the Incubator

The goal of the Kit Bond Science and Technology Incubator is to provide facilities and assistance for start-up companies. The Incubator provides access to Missouri Western faculty, students and staff. It fosters close interaction between businesses located in Northwest Missouri, Missouri Western State University and the private sector to promote economic development in Missouri. It facilitates the transfer of technology from the university lab bench to the commercial production line. The Incubator houses a laboratory, conference rooms, operation offices and tenant spaces. Its flexible floor plan can accommodate 12-15 firms of a few persons each, or a few large firms requiring larger spaces. The Incubator is now accepting tenants.
