A new way for undiscovered entrepreneurs
to turn ideas into something more.
Our north star metric at KnowCap Detroit is to become a catalyst for job creation. We do that by helping people with ideas turn them into fast-growing companies.
We spent three months and over 200 hours holding discovery sessions with stakeholders across the state of Michigan.
Take a look at what we found and how we believe we can help support economic development via entrepreneurship.
When ambitious people with world-changing ideas tap into KnowCap, they receive $150,000 worth of services from our world-class teams.
Without paying any upfront expenses.
A new kind of venture program
This isn't arm-chair coaching. Our engineers build products and our designers build brands.
All from scratch.
We designed our proprietary Startup Engine process to navigate the art and science of building a company simultaneously.
Through our model a founder will "graduate" knowing how to incorporate branding, marketing, design, engineering, operations, and fundraising into sustaining their organization.
If a founder is willing to put in the work, they will succeed. 30% of our companies receive an investment within 60 days of graduating.
We approach any new ecosystem with multi-decade mindset. Just as with Atlanta, we believe Michigan is a hotbed of undiscovered talent.
