The Michigan Economic Development Corporation was formed in 1999 through an alliance between the State of Michigan and several local communities. They are the successor to the Michigan Jobs Commission, the state's economic development department, and they have the ability, authority and reach to serve as a one-stop resource for business retention, expansion and relocation projects. Since MEDC was formed by a cooperation between state and local governments, they provide excellent coordination with local communtieis and agencies across the state.
The MEDC houses Travel Michigan, the State of Michigan's official agency for the promotion of tourism. Travel Michigan collaborates with the state's Destination Marketing Organizations (Convention & Visitors' Bureaus, other regional marketing entitites, and tourism-related state associations) to market Michigan and provide comprehensive visitor information.
The MEDC has a private sector board of directors comprised of business people, local economic developers and educators, so that their policies and procedures meet the needs of the private sector. A corporation, not a bureaucracy, the MEDC can bring together supply and demand, matching up resources and services with the needs of our business customers.
