Spartan Innovations, a startup accelerator associated with Michigan State University, hosts this event, which draws entrepreneurs from around Michigan to compete for $50,000 in prizes. Participants will pitch their ideas or new start-ups to a panel of judges and network with angel and venture capital investors from across the state. The competition is open to anyone with a good startup idea; if it’s a registered business entity, it must be Michigan-based and in existence for one year or less. For details, click here.
