4th Annual Innovate Michigan! Summit
we missed you at the Innovate Michigan! Summit, don't worry -- we've
got you covered! Our 4th annual summit was a huge success, and guests
left feeling energized about the future of Michigan's economic
innovation and growth.
The palpable enthusiasm at the event
confirmed to us the need for a bigger push to support developing
innovative economic development ideas in our Great Lakes region. We hope
you'll be a part of that effort.
