Center for Innovation & Business Development
Taking Care of business, industry, and communities.
The Center for Innovation & Business Development(CIBD) at Pittsburg State University is a regional outreach center for business planning, financing, training, management consulting, technology consulting, and technology-based research and development. The CIBD is thought to be the only organization in the country with all of these services under the same umbrella.
The CIBD serves as a link between the academic community of Pittsburg State University, the resources of State and Federal programs, and the finance, management, and technology needs of business, industry, and units of local government.
Our mission is to retain, grow, and attract high value-added jobs for the citizens of our region. Our vision is to work together with all sectors to develop and implement the shared vision of a growing region with a rising standard of living.
