Entrepreneurial Spirit + Innovation = B.I.G.
The Business Innovation Generator is a group within the Greater West Bloomfield Chamber of Commerce whose mission is to support chamber members and drive innovation through their organizations.
B.I.G. Members have an entrepreneurial spirit and know that innovation is about solving problems and implementing new ideas that are creative and create value.
The Business Innovation Generator will provide ideas for businesses that will help them grow. Many business owners do not have the resources or expertise to fully understand the many facets of owning and operating a business. B.I.G. will fill that gap with its members who will provide innovative ideas in their areas of expertise.
