Meet the Collaborators.

The Mississippi Business Engagement Network collaborates with the Mississippi Economic Development Council, the Mississippi Development Authority, the Mississippi Economic Council and the Mississippi Research Consortium. Our work is guided by MBEN Business & Economic Development Advisory Groups.


Ensuring economic prosperity in Mississippi cannot be accomplished by one person, one organization or one university alone. We must join hands and work together toward a common goal. Together we can achieve and we will succeed.

MBEN and its collaborators support research and innovation that encourage and support economic growth, attract and retain businesses and provide a better quality of life for all.
