PlanetM Grant Opportunities

PlanetM is excited to announce the first-ever PlanetM Startup Grants. Separated into two different categories, these grants encourage mobility startups to test their technologies on Michigan roadways or at Michigan's state-of-the-art testing facilities. Please find more information below on each of these grants.

PlanetM Startup Grants

PlanetM Testing Grant:

The PlanetM Testing Grant will accelerate innovation by providing mobility startups the opportunity to access advanced testing facilities. The cost to test can be a deterrent for certain startups, so PlanetM is taking action to provide funding to reduce this cost. This will allow startups to focus their resources on enhancing and proving their technologies, and work to deepen companies’ ties to Michigan and its mobility ecosystem.

Organizing Grant Partners: Mcity and American Center for Mobility (ACM)

Location: Statewide

Timeframe: July 2018 — September 2019

Value: 25% match required by participant. Grant amounts will vary.
