Mark your calendars for this year's Innovate Michigan! Summit! Join us for a day of connection and collaboration as we bring together an array of professionals and innovators. Don't miss this opportunity to expand your network, forge partnerships, and exchange ideas to better our communities. Learn more about the projects that will be presented at the summit here.


We would also like to hear from you AND your networks! Help the MSU EDA University Center for Regional Economic Innovation (REI) develop equitable economic development project ideas for 2025. Your innovate idea submission could be broad or focused and anonymous if you choose. Your topical project ideas will inform our 2025 call for proposals that are most likely to create or retain jobs and/or businesses in economically distressed communities and regions of Michigan. 


We look forward to seeing you all at the Summit! If you have any questions, please email REI Coordinator, Jenan Jondy, directly at
