MSU Student Entrepreneurs Create ‘Land Grant Goods’
Land Grant Goods is the first Michigan State University-affiliated, student-run business. Its goal is to innovate the local food system while creating the next generation of food activists and entrepreneurs.
Alex Marx, a junior in Environmental studies and sustainability major and an entrepreneurship and innovation minor, co-founded Land Grant Goods, an herbal tea start-up completely run by MSU students, with fellow student Bethany Kogut. Marx says he was drawn to MSU for its Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment program. The interdisciplinary living-learning program focuses on sustainability and environmental stewardship.
