The efactory opened its doors in March of 2013 with one goal in mind: to serve entrepreneurs and business owners throughout southwest Missouri. Today our network of programs is designed to support both large and small businesses throughout southwest Missouri. Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking for 1:1 assistance or a large employer addressing workforce challenges, we’re here to help you start, scale and succeed.
Nine years after opening our doors, our programs remain laser-focused on serving businesses and entrepreneurs throughout southwest Missouri. The building is home to a fully occupied business incubator, a bustling coworking space, robust trainings and business consulting, accelerator programming, corporate innovation offerings, professional development and workforce training, certificate programs, strong support from corporate partners, mentorship and office hour programs, a network of resource partners, career exploration programs for high school students, standout clients, and truly amazing economic impacts.
We believe in hard work, determination, and good ideas.
