AMIC's Impact

Accelerate Michigan supports entrepreneurs who are taking risks and driving innovation in high-tech industries. The competition features the best and brightest seed-stage businesses and introduces them to angel and venture capital firms while awarding up to $1,000,000 in cash and prizes. Since inception, the growing startup companies who have been awarded the grand prize at Accelerate Michigan have hired over 1000 people and attracted more than $650 million in additional investment.

For 2018, we will introduce a new format that gives startups more individual time with investors and high-profile mentors, the opportunity for investors to pitch their firms, and a bigger and better public event with a seated dinner in the newly iconic Lexus Velodrome.
