Expand Networks: Share your connections and expertise to integrate MVE-Lab participants into the vibrant entrepreneur ecosystem of West Michigan. Provide referrals and feedback and organize the next steps to propel their ventures forward. 

Guidance Opportunities: From business structure and modeling to customer acquisition and problem-solving, you will have the chance to impart valuable skills and knowledge across various aspects of entrepreneurship.
