“After more than a decade of dedicated commitment to groups like the Ann Arbor Angels, Ann Arbor SPARK and the Michigan Venture Capital Association, Bank of Ann Arbor has clearly become a cornerstone of our state’s venture capital industry,” says Tom Shehab, M.D., chairman of MVCA Board of Directors and managing director of Arboretum Ventures.  “They have helped our members meet the milestones that have allowed the innovation economy to thrive here in Michigan.  We’re lucky to have a local bank that understands the needs of entrepreneurial and venture investor clients so well.”

Each year, the MVCA Membership Committee and MVCA Board of Directors extend a limited number of invitations to a carefully curated selection of professional service firms.  These are elite organizations who have been identified by MVCA as being valuable partners within the entrepreneurial and investment community.
