Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission has partnered with Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MSET) to open a new satellite office at NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center. The new satellite office will be located in the Mississippi Technology Transfer Center, 1103 Balch Blvd Stennis Space Center, MS 39529. HCPHC’s new office allows staff to engage and meet with existing industry at NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center and create new connections with emerging industries.
Mississippi Enterprise for Technology (MSET), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, fosters regional economic development by harnessing the combined resources of NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center, the State, and the local area to promote business opportunities among both public and private entities.
MSET President and CEO Davis Pace is excited to partner with HCPHC: “MSET is proud to facilitate HCPHC new location in the Mississippi Technology Transfer Center at Stennis Space Center. Our long-standing relationship with Hancock County and the Commission will be strengthened as we work hand in hand to grow the ecosystem at Stennis.”
Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission eagerly anticipates this partnership with MSET and the opportunity to establish new connections within industries, while expanding its existing relationships with current partners. HCPHC expects to move into the satellite office in early November.
HCPHC Executive Director/CEO Blaine LaFontaine believes this is the first step in our long-term effort and partnership: “HCPHC is grateful for the continued communication and support we receive from MSET in our efforts to work with our existing industries at Stennis Space Center. More importantly, we are eager to advance these partnerships focused on new industry opportunities and joint efforts to improve the ecosystem and future Stennis Space Center and Hancock County.”
