What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
We've had a relationship with both the University of Michigan's Business Engagement Center
and Ann Arbor SPARK
Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it
Yes. Thus far I believe only once, but we hope to do it many more times.
Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We're a bootstrapped company and for the most part don't have external investment.
What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
The talent, diversity of interests and capabilities, the lower cost of doing business and a generally longer term view with respect to work.
If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
I think if there were more ways - I know there are already a lot - for businesses and professionals to meet and mingle; there are a lot of different efforts going on to do this with quite a lot of success, but I still have found many people who are astonished when they discover the strong tech community in Ann Arbor.
