DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - A new effort at a history attraction in suburban Detroit is designed to help offer hands-on learning opportunities to the next generation of entrepreneurs.

The Henry Ford recently launched the William Davidson Foundation Initiative for Entrepreneurship, which is backed by a $1.5 million grant. The initiative includes an Entrepreneur-in-Residence program, a public speaker series, workshops and the expansion of youth programming.

The Henry Ford's President and CEO, Patricia Mooradian, says in a statement that inspiring future innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs "is at the core" of its mission.

The effort seeks to leverage The Henry Ford's Archive of American Innovation to help create a deep and engaging understanding of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Henry Ford in Dearborn includes the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation and Greenfield Village.
