U-M launches Desai Family Accelerator

The Desai Family Accelerator, a joint venture of the U-M’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the College of Engineering (COE), is dedicated to helping Michigan startups gain ground.

Launched in August, the accelerator will provide the physical infrastructure, financial resources and mentorship to support early-stage ventures through the critical point of seeking external investors.

The addition of the accelerator will expand on the entrepreneurial programs and courses offered at Ross and COE. Both programs favor action-based learning, with an emphasis on business plan competitions, grants, seminars and the Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization program.
