Year after year, the MGCS also brings greater awareness and opportunity to startups emerging from research departments of leading universities across the country. Over the past 10 years nearly a quarter of the presenting companies have been university-based spinouts, raising capital totaling some $430 million in investments.
About 70 percent (a total of 49 companies) have come from Michigan's Universitys and one-fifth of these companies have realized successful exits.
