The money comes from Philip Hagerman.  The founder of a Genesee County pharmaceutical company says the center will benefit the wider Flint community.

“And attract bright young minds who can make a difference here today and also for long into the future,” says Hagerman.

The gift is one of the largest in U of M Flint’s history.  

The donation will support the newly established Hagerman Endowed Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The university will launch the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management major starting in the fall of 2015.
