Demonstrate your commitment to economic prosperity. 

Ann Arbor SPARK is a 501c (6) nonprofit private, public, and academic partnership founded in 2005 to advance our regional economy. Private sector support is absolutely critical to enable Ann Arbor to scale and amplify our current economic growth initiatives. We consider investors to be key partners in our efforts to ensure the economic prosperity of businesses and the community in the Ann Arbor region.

Ann Arbor SPARK Foundation, a 501c (3) provides funding and support for the activities of Ann Arbor SPARK, for the encouragement, promotion, and support of area development, re-development, and renewal. Examples of programs that the Ann Arbor SPARK Foundation has supported include the management of the Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition, developing support for the American Center for Mobility, and community education about Angel investing.
