Michigan State University has a long history of successful partnerships with the business community and a hard-earned reputation for creatively applying knowledge to real-world problems. These are MSU research success stories, plus links to MSU resources that support business development.

As a result of a partnership between the city of East Lansing, MSU and the East Lansing Downtown Development Authority, the offices of the MSU Innovation Center - which includes MSU Technologies (the university's technology transfer unit), MSU Business-CONNECT (the university's 'front door' for business relationships), and Spartan Innovations (the university's business creation unit) - are now located in the city’s SmartZone space adjacent to the East Lansing Technology Innovation Center.
