Bay City will be the location for a CMU program aimed to start and grow local businesses

CaptureIt’s called the CMU Research Corporation, or CMURC. It opened in 2002.

The new facility in Bay City will offer the same programs and business support as the headquarters in Mt Pleasant. CMURC will occupy 5000 square feet of the second floor of the new facility.

Erin Strang is the President and CEO of CMU Research Corporation.

“We consider ourselves a business incubator and business accelerator so we’ve got the space component and then we also have our accelerator program, and all those programs are really geared to help with job creation and company creation.”

Strang says the expansion is possible through current grant funding.

She says this is the first expansion, but they plan to open another facility after this one.
