Pure Michigan Business Connect
Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC) is a public-private initiative developed by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) that introduces Michigan companies to opportunities that help them grow and expand. Participating companies receive: business assistance at little to no cost; access to a new business-to-business (B2B) network; and an ability to find new customers while leveraging procurement resources to increase their supply chain.
As a partner to MEDC, the department receives breaking information about PMBC and forwards it to businesses in our database. Last week, we sent out a “News to Know” blast about an invite-only matchmaking event that with Ford Motor Company and its Tier 1 suppliers. They are currently seeking area companies that can help them fulfill their needs as related to manufacturing, construction, office and building supplies, warehousing and logistics, industrial equipment, marketing, IT services as well as Labor and HR assistance.
