Award-Winning Innovation

ConnectVNA + MDA

ConnectVNA’s energy web portal was awarded a Virtual Quad grant by the Mississippi Development Authority as part of a program designed to support Mississippi entrepreneurs.

MDA’s Virtual Quad grant program awards venture development grants supported by the EPIC Prize from the U.S. Department of Energy, which MDA won to highlight the state’s technology-based entrepreneurial ecosystem. The competition was open to qualified teams developing new products or services in energy and agriculture technologies—and Connect is proud to bring home the top prize.

MDA’s official release said, “V-Quad’s goal is to build an innovative, virtual incubator network to support Mississippi entrepreneurs launching businesses focused on energy- and agriculture-related technologies. This will be a public-private partnership that connects Mississippi’s research universities, industry, government, and non-profits into a cohesive, tech-based entrepreneurial network.

The project also includes a consortium with MDA, Innovate Mississippi, the Institutions of Higher Learning and the four research universities: Mississippi State, University of Mississippi, Southern Miss and Jackson State.”
