When one day LongerDays.com’s Chad Lawie wandered into Grand Valley State Univeristy’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center on the shores of Muskegon Lake, all it took was a quick discussion with MAREC director Arn Boezaart to begin turning the wheels that would eventually result in Lawie’s company becoming MAREC’s newest tennant.
Lawie’s company, LongerDays.com, provides virtual assistant service, is located just five minutes away in the historic Hovey House.
“We’re all about promoting technology and business start ups – Chad Lawie certainly falls under the category of a young entrepreneur,” Boezaart said. “(Bringing in LongerDays.com) fits our MAREC mission to be helpful and to help guide young people who are doing business start-ups.”
Those business start-ups are important not only to MAREC, but also the city of Muskegon, and Boezaart said that MAREC is committed to helping Muskegon build a new future for itself.
