About Us

What we do and how we do it.

Inside a former poultry processing plant in downtown Springfield lies something special.

A business incubator, training center, support network and more.

The efactory opened its doors in March of 2013 with one goal in mind: to serve entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout southwest Missouri. Today our services cover all the bases – everything from office space for growing companies to custom trainings for businesses.

We're proud to be part of the IDEA Commons district, Missouri State University's vision for an urban innovation park.

The efactory is a proud partner of the Springfield Regional Arts Council and displays art throughout the building and participates in several First Friday Art Walks during the year.

Since opening our doors, efactory programs have:

  • Served over 900 business clients
  • Created over 1,500 jobs
  • Helped clients secure more than $56 million in capital and equity
  • Helped clients secure more than $18 million in research and grant support
