Cross Border Initiatives

“At the University of Windsor, we are laying the foundation for our students to do business in the United States and to expand our relationship with our largest trading partner.” – Jim Marsh, Director of Cross Border Activities, EPICentre

Led by Professor Jim Marsh, EPICentre’s cross border initiatives involve students with Michigan-based businesses with the goal to learn the nuances of doing business in the United States. Consulting students work with several companies over the course of four months to aid in developing business plans, in conjunction with TechTown at Wayne State University.

EPICentre often hosts tours of several business incubators in Detroit, such as Bizdom, Grand Circus and Green Garage to introduce the vibrant start-up culture in Detroit, which includes at least 38 business incubators to date.

EPICentre Cross Border Initiatives have been awarded funds from a Cross Border grant awarded to Dr. Bill Anderson of the Cross Border Institute at the University of Windsor. These will fund internships to assist student startups to expand their operations in the U.S. market, to support students competing at U.S. venture competitions and to pay project managers involved in the cross border course taught by Professor Marsh.
