Connecting with venture capitalists.
We help startups connect with venture capitalists and private equity firms that are looking for promising startup companies--those that offer a high rate of return in a fairly short period of time.
Far from being simply passive financiers, venture capitalists can foster growth through their involvement in the management, strategic marketing, and planning of their invested companies.
Michigan's venture capital industry is steadily growing. Today, over $2.5 billion is under management by over 20 private venture capital funds.
Beyond private investors, we can connect you with corporate funding sources interested in investing in technology startups in fields aligned with their own work, including Michigan corporations like Ford Motor Company, Dow Chemical Company, and more.
