Lawrence Technological University’s Centrepolis Accelerator will provide business acceleration services to a new program launched by Automation Alley—an “Industry 4.0 Accelerator,” a national first, designed to help small and medium-sized manufacturing companies navigate an increasingly technologically sophisticated marketplace.
The Centrepolis Accelerator, a business incubator for manufacturers and product-based businesses, was named Top Project of the Year at last week’s Excellence in Southfield Awards, a program of the Southfield Chamber of Commerce.
On National Manufacturing Day, Friday, Oct. 4, Lawrence Technological University and its partners dedicated the Centrepolis Accelerator—a bright, modern space with the latest in high-tech prototyping and virtual reality equipment to help entrepreneurs, designers and dreamers create the next generation of hardware. Early Accelerator clients represent a wide variety of industries, from transportation to gaming, from exercise equipment to defense.
Lawrence Technological University—joined by the City of Southfield and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation—will cut the ribbon on its new manufacturing business accelerator Friday, Oct. 4 during an invitation-only ceremony at 9 a.m.
Lawrence Technological University finished second in the nation in the annual College Design Challenge, held Wednesday in Vienna, Va. by SourceAmerica, a nonprofit that creates employment opportunities for people with disabilities. It’s the third straight year that LTU was named one of the three national finalists in the event.
The Centrepolis Accelerator, a physical product business incubator established last year by Lawrence Technological University and the city of Southfield, is co-sponsoring the first-ever Michigan Hardware Tech Summit, to be held Wednesday, June 19 at the Lexus Velodrome, 601 Mack Ave. in Detroit.
