Southwest Michigan Region
The Southwest Michigan Region is full of strengths: dynamic companies, a vibrant workforce and a rich set of private, government and philanthropic organizations. As a seven-county region including Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren counties, our approach is bold and collaborative. We work together to leverage the region’s world-class research and academic institutions, historical legacy of innovation and entrepreneurism and our distinctive open, young and diverse culture. Plus – we’re located exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit, just two hours each way. These key competitive advantages ensure that Southwest Michigan is the place where talented people want to live, work and play!
