Southwestern Michigan Economic Growth Alliance

Who We Are

Michigan Economic Growth Alliance (SMEGA) was founded in 1982 by a group of Niles area businessmen responding to a negative pattern of economic erosion threatening their community. These business owners determined that the idea of doing nothing and just letting the economic downturn continue was unthinkable. Instead of doing nothing, they took a very positive step forward by proposing an economic development program that would be financially supported by the local communities, citizens, and business owners in the Greater Niles area.

A public/private initiative that connects local and global purchasers to suppliers of Michigan goods and services at no cost to the business.

Your launch pad for new jobs, careers and talent. It is an online marketplace connecting Michigan's job seekers and employers, serving as a central hub linking all public and private stakeholders who support Michigan's workforce.
