Michigan Ventures Forward is a multi-day event, organized by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, that invites a curated mix of executives, investors, and startups from key domestic and global technology clusters to engage (or re-engage) with southeast Michigan’s innovation-based communities.
Programming includes a tour of Michigan’s largest city, Detroit, where you’ll experience the culture, people, and ingenuity that have contributed to the city’s resurgence. You’ll also visit Ann Arbor, a bustling university town and tech hub just west of the motor city. Other highlights include a welcome dinner with Governor Snyder and one-one-one match meetings with Michigan's best startups. Start MI Up: Michigan Ventures Forward is held in conjunction with Renaissance Venture Capital Fund’s UnDemo Day.
