The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) has announced five winners of V-Quad Entrepreneurs Technical Assistance Program grants: Each will receive $20,000 in collaboration with MDA’s Office of Technology, Innovation & Entrepreneurship and MDA’s Energy and Natural Resources Division. The grants will be used by the five teams to receive technical assistance from one of Mississippi’s four research universities – the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, Jackson State University and the University of Southern Mississippi.

The V-Quad program helps new technology companies seeking to commercialize energy and agriculture related technologies find and access technical assistance and financial networks, connecting Mississippi’s research universities, industry, government and non-profits to strengthen the state’s technology development entrepreneurial ecosystem.
