People innovate ways to solve problems every day. Too often these dreams go unrealized. The challenge lies in connecting the innovators with those who have the resources and the business sense to bring dreams to fruition. The Missouri Technology Expo will create a bridge uniting innovators with those whose resources can advance research as well as develop and commercialize technologies. The Expo will foster relationships between the MU academic community and industry partners and thus serve as catalyst for economic development. It's all about people. It's about networking and building bridges – creating success based on partnerships from the very beginning. More information can be found at the Expo 2010 home page.
