Lansing, Michigan’s capital city, is a major hub for government, education, insurance, healthcare and automobile manufacturing industries. Home to Michigan State University, Thomas M. Cooley Law School and Lansing Community College, educational focus has helped Lansing develop an intellectual environment that is supporting many information technology and biotechnology companies in the area. The major employers are the State of Michigan, Michigan State University and Sparrow Health System. While the downtown area features many government buildings, the area also is home to new restaurants, retail stores, residential developments and the oldest continually operating farmers’ markets in the United State. Known as “The Heart of Michigan,” Lansing looks to stay a home for innovation and developing industries. And Lansing was the place where Magic was born and raised. NBA superstar and businessman Earvin “Magic” Johnson, that is.
