With the aim of further establishing Michigan as a leading state for high-tech companies, the Michigan Strategic Fund has approved extended funding for its “Train the Trainers,” a program managed by U-M’s Center for Entrepreneurship.

Aided by a grant of approximately $200,000, the program will train entrepreneurs, researchers and inventors while expanding the level of mentoring and teaching of commercialized strategies.

Since launching the program in 2014 with $582,376 from the state, U-M has partnered with various universities — including Michigan State, Grand Valley State and Lawrence Tech — sharing best practices on how to turn entrepreneurial theories and research into practice.
