The Product Center forms a bridge between entrepreneurs and support services, offering business/marketing resources and technical/scientific resources, while drawing from a blend of internal expertise and external partnering of MSU campus staff, faculty, specialists, a statewide innovation counselor network, and various external public and private partners. It is the Product Center director that manages this “doorway” into the university and all of the associated resources necessary to execute the primary vision of "being the go-to place for venture development assistance and market assessment research in the food, agriculture and bio-processing sectors of Michigan."
In addition to a well-established base of stakeholder supporters, the Product Center also benefits from its alignment with Michigan State University Extension. As part of the MSU Extension Community, Food and Environment Institute, the Product Center director will have access to a business support office and grant support team in addition to strong local community linkages.
MSU Extension seeks an individual with the personal and intellectual skills and experience to manage a university center with a creative and entrepreneurial spirit by upholding the visions of the University and Product Center, and by strategically engaging internal and external stakeholders.
