our mission

Dedicated to serving the common good in uncommon ways, our investments bring real solutions to many of today's challenges. Our venture investment solely focuses on technologies and companies arising from Michigan State University's extraordinary faculty, researchers, and students. 

From apparel to precision agriculture, our companies strive to make the world better. Our portfolio investments include agriculture, energy, engineering, healthcare, as well as FinTech and sports safety. 

Red Cedar Ventures aspires to invest in breakthrough technologies. Through local investment, we bring economic value—not only to the Greater Lansing Area's community but also to Michigan's economy. Through our investments, we attract, cultivate, and retain excellence—the students, faculty, and researchers who inspire the Spartan Nation.

Founded in 2013, Red Cedar's portfolio has celebrated two successful exits.
