Season's greetings from the University of Missouri Extension Business Development Program!
We'll be back next month with stories, news, tips and training events to help your business grow in 2017.

We look forward to working with you in the new year!

We end 2016 with good news that demonstrates the value of the BDP to Missouri's economic development. From 2014-16, the BDP assisted Missouri companies with technical assistance and education resulting in the following outcomes:
  • 23,927 jobs created or retained
  • $900 million in sales increases
  • $436 million in new investment
  • $1.1 billion in government contracts.
This represents one job created or retained for every $844 in funding, and $120 of economic impact for every $1 invested. This is a return of $2.43 billion for a federal, state and local investment of $20.2 million.
