Entreprenurially Minded Women Warriors! Your Perpsective is Needed Before July 18th!

inforum log

 Inforum is conducting a statewide customer discovery survey to inform constituents about their programming and ensure that they are delivering entrepreneurial support programs that truly meet the needs of women entrepreneurs, and accelerate their ability to scale their businesses, raise capital and create jobs. 


This message was sent tot the College of Engineering by Rachele Downs, Vice President of Entrepreneurial Strategies at Inforum.




Dear Michigan Entrepreneur,


When you consider the impact of women as college graduates, employees, consumers, producers, and entrepreneurs — one thing is clear; gender balance isn’t an issue of fairness – it’s an economic issue that affects everyone.


According to Google for Entrepreneurs, women-led tech companies achieve a 35% higher return on investment, and, when venture-backed, bring in 12% more revenue than male-owned tech companies. Studies have shown that diverse teams create better products and run more successful companies. Additionally, women are highly efficient with capital, often running companies on 2/3 the funds of their male counterparts, yet they are only accessing roughly 4% of venture capital. Though its inGAGE™ strategy, Inforum is dedicated to providing world-class programming, together with the resources to address this need, to make Michigan the Midwest hub for high-tech, high-growth, women-led ventures.


To that end, we are conducting a statewide customer discovery survey to inform our programming and ensure we are delivering entrepreneurial support programs that truly meet the needs of women entrepreneurs, and accelerate their ability to scale their businesses, raise capital and create jobs.  Whether you are an new women-led start-up, or a successful seasoned entrepreneur, we need to hear from you.  Please take a moment to complete this important survey to support Michigan women entrepreneurs.


The survey will remain open until July 18th; please feel free to forward the survey link to others in your network who need entrepreneurial support or assistance or may be interested in sharing their perspective.


Very truly yours,


Rachele Downs
