Technology Activation Manager; Michigan Economic Development Corporation
Helping global tech startups grow in MI with a focus on mobility and transportation.
Learning first-hand from the professional mentors in the office.
Invent@NMU helped me get my foot in the door at MEDC. It taught me how to interact with clients and manage projects. It was the experience that made me realize economic development is a career path I’d like to take, which has motivated me to work hard in my current job.
My advice is to enjoy the outdoors safely and know that you can make your post-college experience whatever you want, but it requires taking classes seriously. Make sure to get in front of your class to speak/ present as much as you can so you have confidence when joining the workforce.
Invent@NMU is a program of Northern Michigan University, powered by students, led by professionals.
