Jay Mitchell

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I took one entrepreneurial class at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business' Zell-Lurie Center for Entrepreneurship while I was an engineering graduate student.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
A local device company and I met them as a graduate student.

Where did you find your first employee?
My main business partner worked in the same research group as I did at the University of Michigan.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have received funding from grants.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
There are lots of resources at the University of Michigan.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
Early on I would have liked more encouragement for our business model. We have not raised any venture capital and it seemed like that conventional wisdom was what defines a good start-up.
