Who We Are


The Missouri Research Corporation was created in November 2003 to provide a separate entity to expand the sponsored research activity of Southeast Missouri State University and develop partnerships with business, industry and government. In June 2013, the nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization was renamed the Missouri Innovation Corporation (MIC) to reflect its development into more entrepreneurial and economic development activity.
