2019 EQ winner Libby Martin shake Dr. Choi's hand

Special Thanks

We appreciate University of Missouri System President Mun Y. Choi for inspiring collaboration among colleagues across our four universities and providing seed capital for the 2018-19 Entrepreneur Quest program.

EQ was modeled after the Innovation Quest (IQ) program at the University of Connecticut. Thank you to creator Keith Fox for his willingness to visit Missouri and share the IQ playbook with us.
