Innovation Incubator Update (March 2020)
Due to Coronavirus-related health precautions, UM-Flint’s Office of Economic Development is taking new steps to protect clients and maintain operations during this uncertain time.
The Innovation Incubator will be virtualizing all business counseling and meetings in the coming weeks.
Staff will NOT be available to meet at our Ferris Wheel or campus offices.
To receive services, email your business counselor or complete an intake form (go.umflint.edu/brightidea).
We recommend using Google Hangouts (https://hangouts.google.com/) or Zoom (https://zoom.us/) video conferencing platforms. Both services are offered at no cost and you do NOT need to create an account to use Zoom. Staff can communicate with you by audio or video, whichever you prefer.
When you set a meeting time with staff, an invite to Google Hangouts or Zoom will be included in the email invitation. Just open this link or call the attached conference number when it is time to have your virtual counseling session.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Nic at Ncuster@umich.edu.
