Invent@NMU is the idea incubator® at Northern Michigan University powered by students, and led by professionals. From inventions and products to small businesses, we offer a variety of innovative entrepreneurial support services to campus and community members across the Upper Peninsula. After inventors and entrepreneurs bring ideas to us, our student and professional staff works closely with them step-by-step to carefully craft the product or business concept and, when appropriate, help launch it. From market analysis and initial concept refinement to prototyping, testing and marketing, we help break down the entrepreneurial process for our clients. Whether it is a product idea, a service, or other small business, we believe all ideas are worth exploring®.
