Venture programs for a stronger startup community

A stronger entrepreneurial climate is accomplished by designing support programs that offer capital, build talent pipelines and promote risk taking. With inclusion as a focus, our venture programs deliver resources and create opportunities for women and minorities.

In order to mobilize our funding and programming, we have partnered with leading entrepreneurial support organizations in Michigan. Through their generous support and guidance, our work is possible.
