The first step towards SPARK entrepreneurial services is filling out a client intake application.
Most of our programs are through Ann Arbor SPARK. These include our business acceleration and incubation work with startups, business development services for established businesses, funding programs (the Michigan Pre-Seed Capital Fund, Ann Arbor/ Ypsilanti LDFA microloans and Eastern Washtenaw microloans), talent services, and marketing the region.
The mission of the Foundation is to provide 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.
