The leaders of several prominent businesses in Michigan have stepped forward to announce their plans to open the doors of a brand new design hub in the southwestern region of the state as an effort to jump-start the state's economy, according to The Associated Press.

The location's name, GRid70, derives from its full title - Grand Rapids Innovation and Design at 70 Ionia Avenue. The center is four-stories tall and features 28,000-square feet of space. Innovators from Amway, Meijer, Steelcase, Wolverine World Wide and the Pennant Health Alliance will share the facility. The group space will allow these leaders in design to interact and collaborate.

"We look at industry trends in lifestyle, design and food in many of the same ways Wolverine, Amway and Steelcase might," said co-chair of Meijer, Hank Meijer. "But the potential for new approaches to our challenges and new creative solutions will be limitless when we work together."

Those interested in design may want to consider their entrepreneurial options. According to USA Today, college students and recent grads are have started many successful businesses.
