In the pursuit to promote economic growth and produce a progressive entrepreneurial ecosystem, U-M’s Center for Entrepreneurship (CFE) is continuing to train partner institutions around the State through funding from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
U-M CFE’s newest partnership is with Northern Michigan’s Invent@NMU. CFE launched its Introduction to Customer Discovery program at Invent@NMU in January with a cohort of four teams looking to test their research and ideas in the market. The program is designed to build a business case for innovation.
During the four-week program, participants uncover business opportunities and discover where their research could best be applied to generate impact.
