The purpose of the Business Design & Innovation Meetup is to build a learning community focused on discovering innovation methodologies and exploring the topics around:

  • the design of business,
  • business models,
  • strategic planning,
  • Lean Startup methodologies, and
  • profitability models


  • startups,
  • non-profits,
  • small businesses, and
  • corporations.

We are a community interested in learning more about designing business models, the process of innovation and strategic planning. We want to learn collaboratively and interactively. We are individuals interested in starting their own companies or interested about bringing innovation within our own organizations. We hope to facilitate an environment where innovators freely share their ideas and help each other to grow the innovation culture in West Michigan.

  • Exploring the definition of innovation and design thinking
  • Analyzing and deconstructing business models of existing businesses
  • Sharing tactics for capturing business models and strategic planning
  • Learning collaboratively and interactively
  • Be the wheel house that connect innovators/entrepreneurs with local innovation resources
