Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist was in attendance at CES to highlight Michigan as a leader in mobility and transportation innovation. During his trip, he met with a wide variety of companies and executives to strengthen the foundation for continued investment in the state by tech and automotive-focused companies, as well as solidify Michigan’s continued global leadership in mobility and transportation innovation.
Lt. Governor Gilchrist was joined by Jeff Mason, CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corp (MEDC). While at CES, the MEDC hosted a matchmaking session to provide connections between qualified, mobility-focused startup companies and similarly focused corporate and investor partners of PlanetM. The meetings aimed to continue the growth of the mobility ecosystem in the state by facilitating investment in Michigan-based startups or by attracting startup companies to Michigan to work with companies already based in the state.
