The fourth annual Michigan Angel Summit has valuable information for people considering angel investing and those who have been investing in entrepreneurs and startups for years.

We’re pleased to welcome our keynote guests, Scott Shane of Comeback Capital and Commissioner Hester M. Peirce of the U. S. Security and Exchanges Commissions.

  • Scott Shane is an economist at Case Western, an angel investor, and the managing director of Comeback Capital.
  • Prior to joining the SEC, Commissioner Peirce conducted research on the regulation of financial markets at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

“Angel investment activity in Michigan has continued to increase in recent years, both in terms of companies attracting angel investment and individuals choosing to invest their wealth in emerging businesses. The Michigan Angel Summit is the opportunity to hear about that activity and also to learn about how angel investing works, both for early stage companies as well as people interested in learning about why it’s an attractive investment activity.”  — Skip Simms, Ann Arbor SPARK senior vice president and managing director of the Michigan Angel Community
