Join us on June 17th as the Momentum companies present their innovative ideas to the AimWest community. Momentum is the exciting new initiative designed to cultivate the Lakeshore's technology sector and retain Michigan's promising talent. The initiative, which is a combined effort of Lakeshore Advantage, a group of West Michigan investors and members of the region's technology community, is a pre-seed fund and incubation program that provides initial investments and business launch assistance to young entrepreneurs who have exceptional ideas for web applications.

Over 28 applications were submitted from across the state. After a rigorous selection process to find the ideas that had the best opportunity for success, 3 companies were chosen to receive investment and a total of 6 companies were invited into the program. The 12 week program which begins in May will end with an "investor day" where the chosen companies will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to 2nd round investors.

The presenting companies on June 17th:

A social network and social media aggregator which will allow people to communicate with their friends between a variety of social platforms.

Aggregates people's online stories and streams (from blogs to tweets to pictures on flickr) and returns the collected data.

Public Collections:
Provides an online outlet for small companies to collect unpaid invoices.

Join us after the presentations as we bounce down to the Black Rose Irish Pub for networking and a kickoff to the summer!
