    From Zero to Lift-off in 90 Days: The Story of SPACE, Inc.
    MIDLAND, MI (January 5, 2017) Please join us on Tuesday, January 17, from 12:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Midland Tomorrow Innovation Center (MTIC).  We will be hosting our Innovator’s Spotlight at our Midland facility located at 2007 Austin Street, Midland, MI 48642.

    Kathie Fuce-Hobohm, President of SPACE, Inc., a local interior design firm and Haworth Best in Class Dealership will be leading this month’s Innovator’s Spotlight. Kathie opened SPACE in 1995 when her employer decided to close the local office furniture dealership where she worked. Facing unemployment she and a former business partner opened a new dealership in Midland.  “Basically, we went from being laid-off to opening SPACE in 90 days,” she told us. 

    Kathie will discuss her journey from start-up to sustainability by sharing the challenges and best practices she has learned along the way.  In addition, because SPACE is known as a creative and highly innovative company she will share some tips for staying relevant in the industry.   

    The event is free for MTIC members. $10 admission for general public. Lunch will be provided. Registration is required. You can register at mmic.us. To learn more please call Sandra Darland at Midland Tomorrow at 989-839-0340 ext. 5.
