Our Mission

to expose students to entrepreneurship

New ventures are a dime a dozen these days — if you live in a tiny strip of California. In the rest of the world, and here in Ann Arbor, engineers aren’t spinning their class projects into businesses and art students aren’t applying their designs to run their own clothing line. And that’s the problem.

So the goal of MPowered is two-fold: one, to bring out the few courageous self-starters among us to begin their entrepreneurial journey, and two, to spread their bold passion to the rest of the U-M community. In short, we’re starting the fire.

What We Do

Current Projects

MPowered Sandbox

We never stop innovating. We never stop experimenting. That’s why we have a sandbox, where new projects are born. Have an idea for a new project that’ll spread the entrepreneurial fire?
