Six communities across the state of Michigan have been identified for the strategies they employ to foster entrepreneurial growth and economic development, according to the annual eCities study.
The study, conducted by iLabs UM-Dearborn’s Center for Innovation Research, identified Sault Ste. Marie as one of the cities for its incentives, innovative programs and best practices geared toward business development.
“eCities highlights how local governments from across Michigan are growing their communities and supporting businesses. Being a university, we want to share the successes and educate about the best practices that can be used by other communities in the state,” said Tim Davis, director, iLabs.
