About this grant

This grant will enable the Mid-Michigan Innovation Team, a project of the Prima Civitas Foundation, and its partners to take the lead in coordinating a series of regional activities that could serve as statewide pilots, to facilitate broad-based understanding and dialogue around academia’s role as a commercialization engine for an economically distressed region. In addition, this initiative will identify exemplary practices that will help a broader base of students, entrepreneurs, and potential investors to share in the largess that academic systems can offer business innovators.
