Michigan eLab was founded by a team of passionate entrepreneurs and investors with ties to the University of Michigan entrepreneurial ecosystem and successful track records in venture capital and creating disruptive startups.

Located strategically in both Ann Arbor and Silicon Valley, Michigan eLab’s mission is to improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem by bridging valuable but scarce resources from the Valley to local entrepreneurs in Michigan.

Unlike an incubator or accelerator, Michigan eLab is a full venture capital fund that can support a startup beyond the seed round and all the way through to final liquidity. eLab also provides formal training in entrepreneurship and shared resources to improve capital efficiency for young companies

In addition to its experienced partners and staff, eLab has a committed network of technology commercialization experts who are passionate about Michigan and have agreed to be coaches for aspiring new Michigan eLab startup companies. Michigan eLab is built on the basic premise that expanding the reach to customers, capital, and liquidity through this network can increase the pace of growth and greatly improve the chances of success for new companies.
