There are 15 “SmartZones” in Michigan – each anchored by an academic institution and supported by the local communities. Technology-based firms, entrepreneurs and researchers are clustered and connected to the collective assets of the region and benefit from the collaborative relationships among universities, industry, and government.
Now one of them just got smarter as Mount Pleasant SmartZone became the second SmartZones in Michigan be become GrowthWheel® Partners joining forces with TechTown in Detroit.
When several organizations in the same network all use the GrowthWheel a great advantage is the common language that is created – as well as new options for working together on sharing knowledge and best practice. Now that is smart.
