Our Impact

About efactory

Inside a former turkey processing plant in downtown Springfield, something special is happening. A business incubator, resource hub, support network and all-around great place to be.

We opened our doors in 2013 with one goal: to serve as a one-stop shop for small business owners and entrepreneurs in southwest Missouri. Today our suite of programs cover all the bases.

The efactory offers small business consulting and training as well as leadership and professional development training through the Missouri State University Small Business Development Center.

Services also include: office space, coworking, an accelerator program, mentorship networks, corporate innovation, and more. 

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

Take a look at what we’ve accomplished together since getting started.
