About the Ann Arbor Chapter
Keiretsu Forum Midwest opened its doors in early 2016, launching its first Forum in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is comprised of the States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin and representing a diverse membership from 25 Cities across the Midwest.
The Ann Arbor Forum was launched in April 2018. While Ann Arbor serves as the home of the University of Michigan, it is also at the epicenter of an exciting entrepreneurial revolution. Our members who attend the Ann Arbor Forum come from Traverse City, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Kalamazoo, Detroit and Toledo.
The region is a diverse and thriving business ecosystem. If it were its own economy, it would be the 6th largest economy in the world. With one of the lowest costs of doing business and living in the U.S., it is home to some of the most vibrant Fortune® 500 companies, who actively support tech and innovation growth. With the support of corporations and regional economic development engines, the Midwest is fast attracting a vibrant start-up scene and becoming an epicenter for innovation and investment. This is aided by an affordable cost of living, world class universities and research centers. The recent announcement of the smart cities award to the City of Columbus was followed by significant private sector investment. The growth of medical start-ups in Ann Arbor; the establishment of Chicago as a pivotal center for financial innovation and medical technology; the establishment of Cincinnati as a world class destination for branding, marketing and consumer goods and the rebirth of Detroit as a vibrant tech center, are all contributing to the early successes at Keiretsu Forum Midwest.
Our members gather in Chicago, Ann Arbor and Cincinnati once a month to meet with entrepreneurs from around the world, who participate in an exciting and “one of a kind” 3-City Road Show.
