Forum: State poised for greatness
The national perception of Mississippi may be that the state is still largely rural, still mired in poverty and chronically undereducated, but a handful of companies new to the Mid-South wants to help change that perception.
Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of Soladigm, a Silicon Valley-based company opening its first manufacturing plant in Olive Branch, chose Mississippi for its proximity to Memphis’ transportation hub and the state’s business-friendly culture.
“We found Mississippi focused on manufacturing,” Dr. Mulpuri said at last week’s regional economic forum at Gold Strike Casino. “Governor Barbour ‘gets it,’ and Mississippi is the most cohesive, from the city to county to state level.”
