Dave Morin

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
The MI-SBTDC has provided consulting to Cielo MedSolutions. They are a great organization.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
University of Michigan Health System, Department of Family Medicine. Our product, Cielo Clinic, is based on technology originally developed within the Health System and the Family Medicine physicians came in as our first customers.

Where did you find your first employee?
Through networking within the Ann Arbor community.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
We have not.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have received capital from Ann Arbor SPARK, Automation Alley, Altarum Institute and one angel investor.

It's often said that Metro Detroit and Michigan need to reinvent their economies to be competitive. Are we making those changes, and if so are we making enough of them or doing it fast enough?
I believe we are starting to make these changes, but I think we can do a lot more. I am very impressed with all of the entrepreneurial activity underway Michigan, there are a lot of hard-working people trying to make a difference. What we now need to do is find ways to connect these entrepreneurs with more early-stage funding and get established companies to work with them as industry advisors, mentors and customers. Overall, though, there's far more entrepreneurial activity underway than many would imagine.
