Start up companies between the Lansing and Flint metro areas have a new resource to help them get off the ground.  Baker College in Owosso is the site of a new business incubator known as the “REV” Center.

REV stands for “Realizing Entreprenurial Vision.” It’s the first such facility in Shiawassee County.

The REV Center hosted its first open house recently. REV Center coordinator Lorraine Austin says they're already working with a test client, the downtown Owosso farmers market.
