The Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition is an international business competition designed to bring together later stage entrepreneurial companies with local, national and international investors.

We showcase the best and brightest new business concepts to investment capital to help foster their growth within Michigan. Targeting entrepreneurs with mid-to-late seed-entrepreneurial businesses — the competition has an immediate and positive impact on Michigan’s economy.  In 2014, seventy-four venture capitalists and angel investors judged the competition – providing a great network across the country as well as constructive feedback to help the participating companies in their persistent drive for excellence.
