Since the official opening, student employees have worked with ideas in industries ranging from alternative energy to recreation — each attempting to solve a unique problem. 100K Ideas has attracted innovators and entrepreneurs from all over the state of Michigan.

“We have achieved this milestone through the ambition and drive of our clients,” said David Ollila, president of 100K Ideas. “The passion that these individuals have for their ideas, and the number of ideas we’ve already seen come through our doors, supports our belief that Flint has endless potential and opportunity.”
