More Info

The Michigan Growth Capital Symposium (MGCS) is the original university-based venture investment fair, which was first held in 1981. This decades-old nationally attended event is the largest Midwest fair of its kind that brings together venture capital investors, business angels, start-up companies, university tech transfer officers and research faculty. MGCS provides an opportunity for participants from the venture capital community to connect with Midwest start-ups seeking funding and to learn about emerging innovations that span tech and the life sciences. For 2017, the Michigan Growth Capital Symposium will be hosted jointly by the Coulter Investment Forum, which will showcase 30 emerging life sciences companies that have originated in Coulter Foundation Research Partnerships at one of 16 national universities. Combined, the MGCS and Coulter Investment Forum will host more than 70 companies and 600 attendees.

The annual Michigan Growth Capital Symposium is hosted by the University of Michigan’s Center for Venture Capital & Private Equity Finance and the Zell Lurie Institute at the Ross School of Business, with support from the Michigan Venture Capital Association. Organizers are currently enlisting sponsors for the 2017 event, with packages ranging from $1,000-$10,000. Applications for companies to present will be available online in January 2017.
