EntryPoint is excited to announce it is expanding its entrepreneurial ecosystem research reports! 

You may have seen our 2019 Detroit Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Report.  In summer 2020, we will be completing regional research reports on Detroit, Ann Arbor and West Michigan.

As part of this research expansion, EntryPoint is looking for subject matter experts and entrepreneurial support organizations to contribute content that will help advance entrepreneurship in each region.  The article can be in the form of thought leadership, program or resource descriptions, tutorials, or “how to” pieces. The purpose is to better support entrepreneurs and highlight you and/or your organization as a resource in the community. The reports are distributed and promoted in hard copy and digital formats.

Content is $1000 per page per report, organizations wanting to be represented in all three reports will receive a 15% discount.  Alternatively, community partners can contribute a logo without content for $500 which will appear in the report and on the report landing page. If your organization is interested in supporting these reports, contact EntryPoint Managing Director and Founder, Emily Heintz at Emily@EntryPointMI.com by October 31, 2019.

These reports are critical resources for community members and key stakeholders to understand each region’s unique strengths, challenges and needs across Michigan. By providing data and first-hand accounts from community leaders, the reports are a critical resource to help promote entrepreneurship and increase access to resources.  The regional research reports provide a comprehensive analysis of specific trends within each area and serve a variety of needs:

  • Education and awareness of regions – including their strengths and challenges – for individual meetings and distribution at industry events with stakeholders, including legislators, media, community members, and outside organizations and communities
  • Program development for nonprofits, economic development organizations and entrepreneurial support organizations
  • Grant support and development
  • Information on investment deal flow and opportunities for venture capital firms and angel investors
