LANSING –A new business-to-business networking program called Pure Michigan Business Connect is linking in-state companies to help them grow. Participants can find resources to expand their supply chain, find business opportunities, access a business-to-business database and receive help such as legal, accounting and other services at little to no cost, according to the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC). The pilot program works to attract procurement leads from both in and outside of Michigan and uses partner organizations to match these needs with potential Michigan suppliers. Chuck Hadden, president of the Michigan Manufacturers Association, said the association is providing its members’ information for the program’s database.
