University of Michigan


Since 2013, EFN has provided mentoring and training solutions to UM’s premier fall technology commercialization practicum in the Ross School of Business.

Startups working in a range of industry sectors come from the UM Tech Transfer licensees, economic development/business accelerator clients, and entrepreneurs from the lively Ann Arbor/Detroit entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Over the past twelve years, the practicum has accelerated 160+ startups, of which 45+ have achieved venture financing and/or liquidity events.  Mentors are invited to a Bay Area UM/EFN event in October to meet teams, students, faculty and other mentors. EFN mentors and investors have opportunities to mentor any team and watch live pitches in October and December.
