UM Dearborn / EO Sponsored E Training

I am proud to say that I helped craft the relationship between University of Michigan Dearborn, the Entrepreneurs' Organization and Jaffe. I want to especially thank Kim Schatzel, William Lekse, Mark Winter from Identity PR and the Entrepreneurs's Organization, the team @ Jaffe, the Detroit Chamber, who spearheaded the grant process locally, and the Department of Labor, who is funding this program, for making this exciting program happen. I am very excited about the prospects for this program and look forward to a successful partnership with University of Michigan Dearborn.

Michigan's Emerging Technology Entrepreneurs' Program

Nine owners of startups or innovation-based businesses looking to expand in Michigan have been approved for the first class of the University of Michigan-Dearborn Product Realization and Technology Commercialization program beginning in October . . . . He also said the school is using the Entrepreneurs Organization, Detroit Chapter to help gather and screen more applicants until Sept. 15. Those not chosen from the original 200 also will get a second look.
