Conversation With Chrystal Irons, Director of MSU’s Small Business & Technology Development Center
SBTDC is part of a statewide network, and actually a national network. In the state of Missouri, we partner with University of Missouri to create our own center at Missouri State University. We are funded by a grant by the Small Business Administration and through support from the university, we provide one-on-one consulting services to people who are in business or who want to start a business at no additional cost to them. Our office serves 16 counties in southwest Missouri.
