We all have dreams of what it’s like to launch the next great startup from our garage, basement, or home office. When in reality, there are lots of benefits to having a dedicated location away from home where you can conduct business in a professional environment when needed. Michigan entrepreneurs who augment their at-home workspace with a virtual desk at Ann Arbor SPARK discover that working with the startup incubator can accelerate their success.
Why Ann Arbor SPARK?
Ann Arbor SPARK is Michigan’s most successful startup incubator and business accelerator. A virtual office at either of SPARK’s Innovation Center locations provides much more than traditional coworking spaces. In fact, Ann Arbor SPARK’s entrepreneurial services program received a 2019 Gold Award for Entrepreneurship from the International Economic Development Council.
