The University of Southern Mississippi kindly hosted MCEDA and MCBL&F for an informative campus tour of The Accelerator, The Mississippi Polymer Institute,
the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials, and the Trent Lott National Center for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship. The meetings
and tours provided an opportunity for our team to better understand resources that are available through USM for Madison County, our emerging and current
workforce, local businesses and industries, and to prospective businesses that are considering Madison County as their new home.
