Detroit Tech Companies May Be Heading to Silicon Valley

Detroit Tech Companies May Be Heading to Silicon Valley

Three local Detroit tech startups are one step closer to pitching their products at the annual Google Demo Day in Silicon Valley hosted in April. Local Ann Arbor companies AdAdapted Inc., Genomenon and Detroit-based LevelEleven won the top three spots at the Grand Circus pitch competition, and will be the top contenders from the area for the Google Demo Day opportunity. The three weren’t ranked in any order, and judges say that one or possibly two of the companies could move forward and onto the Google pitch phase.

In a previous year, Detroit company iRule LLC. was chosen to pitch at the Silicon Valley event. They didn’t win funding from that particular contest, but went on to raise a venture capital round of $2.5 million later that year.

This year’s contenders are hoping to outshine the competition with their innovative technologies. AdAdapted builds simple ads designs for mobile devices, while Genomenon is a software that optimized human genome data sequencing for researchers and geneticists. LevelEleven is a portfolio company of Detroit Venture Partners that makes sale-motivation optimized software.  Each of the companies has seen success in the local market, and aspires towards venture capital funding and continual growth.

Detroit tech companies are surely representing in their local market and Wheel Media is excited to see these new companies gain traction and funding in Silicon Valley this April.
