WEST MICHIGAN — A joint venture partnership that stretches from Middleville to Holland and Zeeland is happening because of the networking formed on Grand Rapids' Medical Mile.

It is the classic case of one company, LumenFlow Corp. in Middleville, having a great idea and finding a partner, Venntis Technology LLC in Holland, that could make it happen.

They were brought together by a third party organization that is all about helping move new ideas to market: the West Michigan Science and Technology Initiative at Grand Valley State University (WMSTI) and the West Michigan Medical Device Consortium.

LumenFlow and Venntis Technologies formed United Lumen LLC to develop patent-pending high-efficiency LED designs that all parties told MiBiz will surpass anything on the market and help the public get much more comfortable with LED technology to light homes and offices.



Lumen Flow’s Paul Bourget, Brian Zatzke and Harold Brunt developed the company’s idea for a new LED technology, but realized they needed to seek partners to help produce and commercialize the new product. They found those partners in Venntis Technology and Ventura Manufacturing. Image originally published on
