Implementation Plan

The Southeast Missouri region is transitioning from an economy based on agriculture and old-line manufacturing. New occupations require foundations in math and science. Southeast Missouri WIRED partners will develop innovative technologies and focus on higher productivity, foster entrepreneurship and business growth, further develop talent to meet existing needs, encourage new business start-ups, and leverage best practices in growth and economic development.
