Michigan Founders Fund (MFF) is a 501(c)3 public charity representing the collective action of the state’s high-growth entrepreneurs. By equipping startup leaders with founder-first programming and company-building support, diversity, equity, and inclusion-focused resources, and a simple mechanism for philanthropic giving, we empower each other to accelerate business growth and community development. Michigan Founders Fund previously served the community as the Ann Arbor Entrepreneurs Fund, an initiative of the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation that was launched in 2019 with a focus on Washtenaw County. To advance the support of high-growth entrepreneurs, increase programming, and take a new approach to grantmaking efforts, an independent and re-structured organization was established in December 2021. MFF is dedicated to supporting founders and communities wherever they are throughout the state of Michigan.
