Supporting startups and entrepreneurship

MSU offers students and faculty an array of entrepreneurial resources and academic opportunities. The university’s commitment to supporting new business ventures was recognized by Entrepreneur magazine, which named East Lansing among the top 10 U.S. college communities promoting creative entrepreneurial initiatives.

Spartan Innovations, part of MSU’s Innovation Center, optimizes the environment that turns MSU innovations into successful Michigan businesses by providing faculty and students access to experienced business leaders and start-up funding opportunities and by connecting university-wide entrepreneurship programs and community collaborations.
