Michigan venture capital vs. national venture capital

Growing entrepreneurship is a major goal of the state, and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is seeing results.

Relative to the national landscape, from 2008-12, the Michigan venture capital community has demonstrated strong growth, while the national venture capital landscape has contracted over the same time period.

The MEDC offers millions in grants and loans to in-state ventures, often working through venture capital and private equity partners.



Paula Sorrell, managing director of entrepreneurship and innovation for the MEDC, sees a wide range of startups in the state, including medical devices, biotech, IT, and advanced materials.
