LCC/Wolverine Caucus Event on Entrepreneurship

Whether it is “Startup Weekend” or “Maker Week” at LCC or UM, student inventors and entrepreneurs in Michigan are developing business start-ups at a rapid rate. At the University of Michigan, Startup Weekend by Google for Entrepreneurs, managed by the U-M student organization, MPowered, launched an amazing “startup-athon” of innovation and creation. Lansing Maker Week culminated with Startup Weekend: Maker Edition, hosted by Lansing Community College in partnership with Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP). Participants spent the weekend at LCC’s West Campus tech center where they had access to electronics labs, CAD systems, 3D printers, metal working areas, woodworking tools and more.

A seminar presented on these topics begins at 11:30 a.m. and runs through 1 p.m., Feb. 25, in the Trustee Board Room of the Admin Building at LCC.

About the speakers:

Lawrence Molnar will discuss the projects, initiatives and incubation studies that U-M conducts to support entrepreneurship, new venture innovation, technology transfer and commercialization. He will also detail the programs that support entrepreneurship for
students in K-12 systems, undergraduate and graduate university programs.

Nancy Benovich Gilby will discuss the University of Michigan School of Information Entrepreneurship Program that is helping students to develop an entrepreneurial mindset with solutions to establishing their own businesses and work opportunities.

Jeff Smith, of the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) and Tom Donaldson, Michigan Small Business Development Center will share the adventure of a Startup Weekend: Maker Edition: seven days of events at venues across the Lansing region, in 2014.
