Innovate Michigan! Summit 2014
The third annual Innovate Michigan! Summit was held on Thursday, September 4, 2014 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing.
REI would like to thank everyone who supported and attended the 2014 Innovate Michigan! Summit. It was great to see so many people (over 150) from around the state come together to learn about how they can improve our state's economy! We would also like to thank Senator Carl Levin and Dr. June Pierce Youatt (MSU Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs) for providing remarks at the beginning of the event. Senator Levin's video message has now been posted online for those who missed it.
There's also a quick recap video about Michigan Inventors Coalition's Inventors Expo 2014, which was held down the hall from the Summit.
