Posted October 13, 2019 04:15:24With the economic downturn, Michigan’s entrepreneurial scene has been on the wane.
The number of entrepreneurs in the state has plummeted to a low of 5,000 in the last year, down from 20,000 a decade ago.
With the economy struggling and the unemployment rate hovering around 10 per cent, it seems that many people are looking for more options.
In an attempt to encourage more entrepreneurs to start businesses in the Michigan market, a statewide entrepreneurship program called the Opportunity Spotting Entrepreneurship Education Program (OSEP) was launched in 2016.
OSEP aims to teach entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship-related skills to the youth in Michigan and other states through a series of events and training.
The first two days of OSEP were held on October 6 and 7, and the third and final day was held on November 8.
The programme is sponsored by the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and the Michigan Association of Entrepreneurs.
The events will be held at the University of Michigan’s College of Business and the College of Engineering.
