A week-long series of events celebrating innovation and inspiring Ann Arbor’s next great startup. Connect firsthand with leading tech companies that are disrupting industries and redefining innovation. Kicking off the a2Tech360 series of events is FastTrack. This award ceremony recognizes high-growth companies headquartered in Washtenaw or Livingston county. As awardees are characterized by their rapid growth, rather than their absolute size, they can range in size from small companies to large enterprises.

The week concludes with everyone’s favorite events — Tech Talk and the always festive A2 Tech Trek and Mobility Row!
