“Through consistently insightful research like the annual report they develop for the Michigan Venture Capital Association, EntryPoint has proven itself to be extremely helpful to foundations in understanding the landscape of a particular community. EntryPoint partners with organizations to deliver comprehensive research reports and to implement effective data-driven programs that promote entrepreneurship across the Midwest. Data is more than abstract numbers and graphs for community-focused organizations like the Kresge Foundation; these findings help to provide us with a comprehensive picture of our communities so that we can readily determine what actions we can take to strengthen our economies and change lives for the better. EntryPoint employs a holistic approach to researching entrepreneurship and investment that is key to developing impactful programs that address larger economic trends without losing sight of the community members themselves.”
