Macomb-OU INCubator joins forces with Sterling Heights economic dev dept.

The Macomb-OU INCubator is combining forces with the economic development-oriented agencies of the city of Sterling Heights and Macomb County for a new initiative called Velocity.

The Macomb-OU INCubator, the business accelerator for Oakland University, will share its office space in Sterling Heights with the city's economic development department and its workers. The idea is to create synergies between the local agencies.

"It's a collaborative center with all of the economic development agencies coming together to serve as a hub for business incubation and economic development," says Denise Gerstenberg, business development manager for Sterling Heights. "It really promotes a collaborative work environment. It promotes a sharing of infrastructure and resource and avoids duplication of services."

Velocity will hold a launch party at the Macomb-OU INCubator, 6633 18 Mile Road in Sterling Heights. The event will be held on Oct. 17. For information, call (586) 884-9320 or send an email to tjarzab@sterling-heights.net.
