Bringing Innovation to the Mississippi Gulf Coast

The Innovation Center, in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service and the MS Export Assistance Center, have designed this program to assist Mississippi small businesses in learning the fundamentals for exporting products and services by developing skills in international marketing, trade finance, and global logistics.

The program is created for first-time exporters or for those firms considering expanding to a new global market. Key trade sessions presented at the port of Gulfport International Airport will facilitate an optimal learning experience for firms to obtain first-h and trade knowledge and application by having access to the trade, transportation and logistics resources available to them.

fresh ideas, a product, a service… something to make life a little simpler…

The Innovation Center, a small business incubator in Biloxi, Mississippi, provides a place to
release your ideas and realize your potential. It;s an enriching environment where sharing
space, business basics and collaborative creativity will cultivate your idea, transforming it
into reality

Our goal since October 1990 has been to encourage the development of small, start-up
businesses by providing an atmosphere in which they can survive and prosper. In addition to
a successful tenant program, we also provide support through walk-in consultatons, semi-
nars and courses, a virtual tenant program, and other outreach programs. We are continual-
ly searching for new ways to grow the entrepreneurial spirit and small business sector on
the Gulf Coast.

The Innovation Center is a project of the Harrison Country Development Commision with
support from the Greater Biloxi Economic Development Foundation.
