About Us

Starting a new company … or growing an existing one? MTEC SmartZone can help.

Since April 2002, MTEC SmartZone has been guiding entrepreneurs and helping create high tech jobs in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. We’re one of 15 Michigan SmartZones that provide office space, training, access to funding, coaching and other resources to help businesses owners develop ideas, patents and innovative opportunities.


Our work is made possible through partnerships with the cities of Houghton and Hancock, Michigan Technological University, Keweenaw Economic Development Alliance and Keweenaw Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and local and statewide economic development organizations.
