The University of Michigan has spent years developing an environment that supports both faculty and students who want to commercialize the fruits of their labor by starting their own companies.
Bryce Pilz is a co-instructor at one of the newer additions to the campus’ entrepreneurial ecosystem, the Law School’s Entrepreneurship Clinic. The clinic provides free legal advice and support to startup companies run by students.
“For the student entrepreneurs, this is huge,” Pilz said.
“They’re doing great things, and they’re extremely active with their startups, but there are big mistakes you can make in the early stages if you don’t have someone to help you.”
