The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which provides the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community with various intelligence solutions and technologies, has partnered with the Missouri Technology Corp. (MTC) to allow small businesses and universities to license NGA’s intellectual property.

MTC is a public-private partnership launched by the Missouri General Assembly to promote entrepreneurship and start-up growth throughout the state. The new partnership aims to build stronger connections between NGA and the Missouri start-up community by identifying companies and universities with an interest in commercializing the federal agency’s technologies.

“Our goal with this partnership is to streamline access to groundbreaking geospatial intellectual property for Missouri’s entrepreneurs and academic institutions in a way that will help expand Missouri’s thriving innovation economy,” says MTC chairman Jason Hall.

“We are excited to better serve NGA, Missouri entrepreneurs and our universities with this big step forward,” Hall adds, “and we appreciate the confidence NGA has placed in MTC and the state of Missouri.”
