NEU Magazine Volume 5
As its name implies, NEU (German for “new”) is all about what’s new–and what’s happening–in West Michigan’s entrepreneurial community. It is designed to support the efforts of people within our community by recognizing the ideas, strategies, and accomplishments of local entrepreneurs and partner organizations. The magazine also provides information on educational opportunities and community resources. NEU is published by Grand Valley State University’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation within the Seidman College of Business.
