“Early-stage capital doesn’t exist in Michigan, except for ID Ventures. They are at the center of the state’s startup community and were the only investor that came in during our early, riskier stage. Their portfolio was full of companies like mine.”
“Finding early-stage capital in Michigan is a challenge. You have to work twice as hard as coastal startups. The investment from ID Ventures was crucial. They have a ton of social capital and were a catalyst for additional funding.”

“The investment community is risk averse for Michigan startups—the checks are smaller, diligence is more time consuming, and valuations are lower. But it is an amazing ecosystem that is supportive and works together, and ID Ventures is leading that cohesion, providing tremendous support in early-stage funding through capital and mentorship.”
