Do you have a high-tech startup? How about an early-stage, growth-based business? Are you looking to bring your innovative idea to market? If so, OU INC invites you to attend Starting Up, a workshop exploring Michigan’s “entrepreneurial ecosystem,” designed to help you start and/or grow your tech-based business. Steve Kent, OU INC’s client strategist, will help you navigate the wide range of resources the State of Michigan offers – including business incubators, SmartZones, various support services, university technology acceleration and commercialization, and funding programs – to identify what’s right for you and your business. A brief Q&A session will follow.

OU INC Lunch and Learn
Strategic Planning

Wednesday, February 13, 2018: 11:30am-1pm
Free to Attend

OU INC at Shotwell-Gustafson Pavilion
419 Golf View Lane, Rochester


Using a structured strategic planning process can result in a goals-based plan of action.  That plan of action sets a course through the planning period.  This Strategic Planning process uses well-known tools and techniques to do the work.  A planning team can actually enjoy the process and learn along the way (of course, only with a good, experienced facilitator).  This presentation will describe a straight-forward process to achieve that outcome.  Some of the topics to be covered include: the Organization; Mission, Vision, and Values; Health of the Organization; Assessing the External Forces; Internal Capabilities; Expected Scenarios; Imperative Action; and Outcomes Desired
