The Enterprise for Innovative Geospatial Solutions (EIGS) is a program of the Magnolia Business Alliance, which is a non-profit, industry-independent organization formed by Cluster members with a passion to enhance the small business ecosystem in the region. Funding for the organization was awarded through a contract from the U.S. Small Business Administration meant to promote job growth through clusters of companies in "innovative economies." Members have access to business support, counseling and classes that provide services using geographic information systems and allied technologies.
"These new members will add to the strength of the cluster and its core capabilities and continue to diversify our services," said Craig Harvey, an MBA founder. "We are pleased to welcome them to the EIGS family."

Some companies are headquartered in Mississippi while others are branch operations of larger national corporations. With business operations all over the country, the cluster also has a global reach. EIGS membership is open to companies in the geospatial technology and/or remote sensing industry.
