Macomb-OU INCubator pleased to welcome new executive director
Julie Gustafson has been named executive director of the Macomb Oakland University INCubator in Sterling Heights. The founding director and past president of the award-winning Amoskeag Business Incubator, located in Manchester, N.H., she brings 13 years of successful business development experience to Macomb County startups.
During Gustafson's tenure at the Amoskeag Business Incubator, the facility became the longest-operating incubator in New Hampshire, raising more than $2 million for the development of two dedicated facilities. Gustafson directed the support system for hundreds of companies, graduating 87 percent from incubator-supported companies to self-sustained, independent businesses in the community.
Gustafson will use her experience in educational seminars, business development workshops and networking events to help promote the tools and resources of the Macomb-Oakland University INCubator throughout the state.
"We're pleased to have Julie on board with us, particularly given the impressive record of success she has already built in the arena of entrepreneurial support and business development," said Oakland University President Gary Russi.
"I'm confident that moving forward, she'll not only help our client startups prosper, but also contribute significantly to the economic health of Macomb County and all of southeastern Michigan."
