Venture Capital

If innovation is the engine, investment is the fuel. For Michigan to transform its economy and nurture homegrown high-tech companies, it must develop a robust venture capital community. Ann Arbor understands this better than most.

In conjunction with the University Of Michigan, SPARK, the MEDC and the Michigan Growth Capital Symposium (held in Ypsilanti every year), entrepreneurs are starting to see a change in attitude about local investment. Ardesta, EDF, Arboretum Ventures, Plymouth Venture Partners and the University's Wolverine Fund are just some of the firms trying to change Michigan's economic landscape.
