DARE TO DREAM GRANTS
Dare to Dream is a grant program that moves University of Michigan students through the business creation process by offering business development seminars and awarding $500-$5,000 in grants to individuals and/or student teams. The program requires students to submit deliverables as they are guided through the business development path from a nascent idea to formulating and assessing potential businesses to planning and launching these businesses. The grants program has three phases and students may enter their business into the program at any phase. Once entered the business cannot re-apply for the same phase or a phase before it. Applications are accepted each Fall and Winter. See ‘Apply’ to decide to which phase you should apply.
Support for the Dare to Dream Grant program is provided by Eugene Applebaum, founder of Arbor Drugs, Inc. and president of Arbor Investments Group. Support for the Mayleben Family Venture Shaping Grant program is provided by Tim Mayleben, CEO and President of Aastrom Biosciences, and his wife Dawn Evans.
