Michigan AAE

Since August 2020, 25 second-stage Michigan entrepreneurs have been inducted into the American Academy of Entrepreneurs (AAE), which is conducted in partnership in the state with the Michigan Economic Development Corp. 

As a testament to the caliber of mentors among Michigan’s AAE ranks, the foundation has named three mentors as Entrepreneurs Emeritus (Dave Galbenski, Erick Stewart and Keith Paul ). Their commitment to paying it forward now has a greater impact on more entrepreneurs being served by the foundation.
