A HUB FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Traverse City was recently listed as fourth on the list of ‘Most Popular Micropolitan Areas (Small Cities) for Startups’. Investors, such as the Northern Michigan Angels and Boomerang Catapult, have now injected about $10 million into 35+ local startups. A supportive entrepreneurial environment, combined with a commercial airport (ranked 3rd for most economic impact in the state of Michigan) with more than 10 direct flights linking the region to major markets, expansion of our gig fiber network, and the designation of a Qualified Opportunity Zone, gives Traverse City the assets to make it especially attractive for talent working in technology and entrepreneurship.
