Ann Arbor SPARK to hold a2Tech30 next month

Motor City Beat

Ann Arbor SPARK will be hosting a2Tech360, a week-long series of events, as a celebration of Ann Arbor’s innovation spirit. It will take place from October 1 - 8, 2021.

“a2Tech360 is a fun and engaging way for anyone around the world to discover Ann Arbor’s high-tech companies and ecosystem,” said Paul Krutko, Ann Arbor SPARK president and CEO.

The FastTrack Awards, held at the University of Michigan Golf Course on Friday, October 1 from 7 to 9 p.m., will mark the start of this year's a2Tech360. It will honor the fast-growing ‘gazelle' enterprises based in Washtenaw and Livingston counties and provide an opportunity to network with local business and community leaders. This will be conducted both in-person and remotely.

A2 Tech Trek and its companion event, Mobility Row, will close out a2Tech360 on October 8 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the SPARK Central Innovation Center. Ann Arbor SPARK's Tech Talk is also on that day, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Michigan Theater.

The Michigan Angel Summit, Mobility Summit, and MI-Tech HQ's on the Edge all feature Invest360 as part of their programs. A panel of judges will select one company to receive a $50,000 check at each of the three Invest360 information technology, mobility, and healthcare sessions.

These selected companies will then pitch in person at the Michigan Theater at the conclusion of Tech Talk on Friday, October 8, at noon, where a "People's Choice" vote will determine which Invest360 company will get an additional $50,000.
