Key Takeaways from the MVCA Outreach Tour

Chris Holman speaks with Maureen Miller Brosnan, Executive Director, MVCA - Michigan Venture Capital Association, Ann Arbor, MI to discuss three Key Takeaways from the MVCA Outreach Tour.

MVCA kicked off a multi-city outreach tour starting in Grand Rapids, then Chicago, and as the last stop, Boston.

Each year, the team travels to different locations across the country to meet with venture firms to share the exciting activity happening in Michigan’s entrepreneurial and investment community and help coordinate Immersion Days for those who are interested in investing and working in Michigan.

Because every dollar invested in a Michigan startup by a Michigan-based venture capital firm attracts $4.61 of investment from outside of Michigan, these outreach trips are an effective way to bridge connections between out-of-state partners and Michigan venture capital firms to bring more capital to the state.

1. People are SO excited to hear more about Michigan’s entrepreneurial & investment community!

2. Being able to create meaningful connections is a powerful thing.

3. The venture capital community is ever changing.

Chris and Maureen are also looking forward to the 2017 Annual MVCA Awards Dinner November 15, 2017 set for Detroit.
