Find your niche in Mississippi

Mississippi supports minority-owned businesses, woman-owned businesses and small businesses with a bevy of resources that encourage growth, including several programs and workshops to help increase market competitiveness.

Incentive offerings specifically geared towards socially and economically disadvantaged companies help Mississippi small businesses find equitable footing. Additionally, the state’s low cost of doing business, efficient regulatory environment and the innovations and talent from eight public universities, including four research universities, provide a strong argument for in-state business.
