To date, GREAT has provided nearly 200 students from nearly all UM schools/colleges with an opportunity to spend the day in West Michigan. There, they interact with startups, work with tech companies, and mingle with influential U-M alumni and entrepreneurs in the Grand Rapids area. Students come away with a more solid understanding of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in West Michigan and experience growth as innovative and collaborative thinkers.


If you are interested in learning more about the entrepreneurship scene in West Michigan and are ready to learn, pitch, and creatively apply your skills to real-life business challenges set by companies in this region, then GREAT is for you!


CFE will be taking a select number of students on this annual one-day trek. Be prepared to wake up early, hop on a bus, and head to GR for a day full of adventure. Check back soon to see our itinerary for the day!
