The Lansing Economic Area Partnership(LEAP) and Spartan Innovations hosted The Hatching on May 26, 2016 at Dublin Square in East Lansing. Local entrepreneurs and supporters attended this event to cheer on the next big idea they’d like to see hatch in Lansing.
The winning idea, Bubbly, was presented by Connor McInnery, Alex Meverden and Max O’Connor, and is a refreshing sparkling water made with organic caffeine and natural flavor.
Tony Willis, director of the New Economy Division at LEAP said, “Great flavored and artisan water products have continued to experience much growth. The team did an excellent job presenting their idea and had a detailed plan going from product into market, covering cost, manufacturing, and distribution.”
The May sponsor of The Hatching was Loomis Law firm. The Hatching is part of a community-wide effort to support local entrepreneurs and make the Lansing region a great place to start a business. This event helps move new, local business ideas from concept to reality and provides winners with funding, legal support, market research, office space and more.
Beginning in June, The Hatching will now take place the last Wednesday of the month at Lansing Brewing Company in Lansing.
