The Desai Family Accelerator, a joint venture of the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business and the College of Engineering, has just launched.
Managed by the Ross School’s Samuel Zell & Robert H. Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies and the College of Engineering’s Center for Entrepreneurship, the program will provide Michigan startups with mentoring from faculty and alumni networks, office space at Pillar Technology in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., investment with funding from the program to help advance their ventures and staffing support by entrepreneurial students via internships and other programs.
Funding and support is being provided by the Desai Sethi (DS) Family Foundation and the Davidson Foundation.
It will be led by Kelly LaPierre, Managing Director (email@example.com).
In the coming weeks, information on the application process will be made available.
