Making It In Michigan Sponsorship

April 27-29 and May 4-6, 2021
Online via Zoom

The conference will be held from April 26 to May 7, 2021. By holding it over the course of two weeks we hope that entrepreneurs, buyers, and others will be able to incorporate the sessions into their busy schedule as we know it is difficult to find time to “get away” for a virtual conference. The program will feature in-depth educational sessions, networking opportunities and take-home resources. The program will also host a pitch competition with the Michigan Good Food Summit and a collegiate chef recipe showdown in partnership with the Michigan Bean Commission. The conference will also feature a virtual tradeshow for food entrepreneurs to sell their products and make connections with buyers. The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Michigan Department of Economic Development are partnering to offer a unique matchmaking opportunity for buyers and sellers.   

Sponsorship for Making It In Michigan Sponsorship is open.

Sponsorship closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2021.


Michigan State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Accommodations for persons with disabilities may be requested by contacting the event contact two weeks prior to the start of the event.
