This year’s Michigan Growth Capital Symposium (http://www.michigan-gcs.com/) was another rousing success! A blue ribbon list of start-ups, investors and speakers demonstrated how the Michigan/Detroit/Ann Arbor area is becoming an important hub for innovation and start-up success.
One of the most important parts of the MGCS is the presentations by start-ups to investors and other symposium attendees. Since start-ups are pre-screened based upon both their business ideas and their presentations, those who have honed their presentations have a greater chance of success.
The New Enterprise Forum plays a dual role in the success of these start-ups:
- NEF coaches volunteer their time to the University of Michigan Zell Lurie Institute to give input to start-ups who have been selected to pitch at the Symposium; and
- The New Enterprise Forum has a tremendous track record of start-ups that have been through the NEF coaching program being accepted as MGCS presenters.
We are proud that the companies that have gone through New Enterprise Forum coaching continue to be selected to present at the Michigan Growth Capital Symposium. This year’s NEF-coached presenters were:
