Michigan Universities Promoting Innovation

In a recent post on our blog we mentioned how Florida is making an effort to become more innovative. This article from mlive.com, tells how Michigan is also making an effort to become more innovative in order to help the economy. All 15 of the public universities across Michigan have banded together to form a group called Michigan Initiative for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The goal of this group will be to raise and distribute $75 million in funds in order to promote their cause. Thomas Haas, President of Grand Valley State University released this public statement:

All the universities are coming together knowing that we have an obligation to be a catalyst for the jobs of the future. We're going to create some excitement about entrepreneurs.
