On October 4, industries across Michigan will celebrate Manufacturing Day, when factories open their doors to students interested in pursuing a career in the manufacturing industry.
Here in the Southfield City Centre, all eyes will be on the grand opening of a one-of-a-kind workspace dedicated to supporting businesses that manufacture physical products.
The Centrepolis Accelerator will open its coworking and prototype workspace on the campus of Lawrence Technological University on October 4 with a public open house from 12 to 4 p.m.
The center is located at 21415 Civic Centre Drive. In addition to collaborative workspaces and meeting rooms, the 6.300 square-foot center features a prototype lab with wood and metal millworking machines, bench grinders, mitre saws, 3D printing, and an augmented/virtual reality studio.
As a collaborative effort between LTU and the City of Southfield, the Centrepolis Accelerator supports businesses by providing resources to help clients conceptualize and refine viable product designs, establish mentor relationships, recognize consumer markets, scale product-based businesses, connect with leading industry professionals, and leverage student engineering and design talent.
