Opportunity Connector

I’ve been involved in the start-up world for many years and it’s been invigorating to promote and support high tech companies, especially those starting, relocating, and staying in Michigan. Connecting entrepreneurs to the resources they so desperately need is one of my passions, and I’m keenly aware of how important it is to have the right team in place, early on, to move a vision forward. 

As the manager of a bustling business accelerator in downtown Ann Arbor, I’ve had the awesome opportunity to work closely with high tech companies across Michigan. I’ve also had the pleasure to collaborate with dedicated thought leaders across the state who share our vision to attract and retain companies (and their talent). Each day, I see evidence that Michigan is thriving because of its entrepreneurial atmosphere, and I’m thrilled to be part of the growth and positive energy.
