November has arrived and this means the large and in charge Accelerate Michigan is on its way.

The competition draws entrepreneurs from across the state to pitch for their piece of $1 Million in prizes. The global business competition offers two tracks, one for students and one for international businesses.

The three day event will start on Tuesday, November 12th with a reception at the Guardian Building in Detroit. Semi-finalists will present on November 13th, and final presentations and awards will take place on the 14th. Details are online at

The event will feature some awesome keynote speakers, but we’re really looking forward to seeing the entrepreneurs that have made it to the final round. Many are manufacturing based, technology companies, or are in the bio-medical field. Check out the full list of finalists.
