Support WMU Starting Gate

Starting Gate is a student business accelerator that gives students rich and valuable resources to develop their startup companies. Located in the Park Trades Center in downtown Kalamazoo and operated by the Haworth College of Business Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the accelerator is open 24/7. Any WMU student can apply through a competitive application process in which students must demonstrate a promising idea for a product or service, which can be launched within a short period of time. Starting Gate provides a fast-track to business launch. In the past 3 years we've helped over 57 student companies find mentors, write a business plan, learn Lean Startup methodology, gather market research, prepare financial statements, compete at national competitions, pitch to investors, and much more.
