What will keep future entrepreneurs from leaving the state?

Keeping the brains here at home.

The University of Michigan Ross School of Business and the Changing Gears project are partnering on a panel discussion about "brain drain" being held at 5 p.m.

You can watch the discussion online by following this link.


Here's a description of the discussion from Changing Gears' senior editor Micki Maynard:

Why do some of the smartest students from around the country flock to our region, and leave after they graduate? What makes companies and entrepreneurs decide to invest here anyway? Changing Gears will look at those questions at its next event, “Don’t Go! What Will Keep You Here?” with speakers from Google, Mr. Song Millinery and Heart Graffiti. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, Feb. 16 at 5 p.m. and come to Blau Auditorium at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan.

Mark Brush was the station's Digital Media Director. He succumbed to a year-long battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, in March 2018. He was 49 years old.
