The Community Impact Award recognizes organizations, events, or individuals that create the meaningful, effective connections necessary to build Michigan’s entrepreneurial economy. Accelerate Michigan promotes collaboration and provides critical resources to grow Michigan’s entrepreneurial and investment community.

Accelerate Michigan Innovation Competition, a program of ID Ventures, is a competition that supports Michigan’s entrepreneurial ecosystem by offering entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their companies to investors while building connections with entrepreneurs, business acceleration resources, and experts in their sector during carefully curated individual meetings.  The event features the best and brightest seed-stage startups and introduces them to angel investors and venture capital firms while awarding $1,000,000 in cash and prizes. Since its launch in 2010, grand prize winners of Accelerate Michigan have hired over a 1,000 people and attracted more than $550 million in additional investment.
