it takes a village.
Cahoots is a passion project built to support innovators by creating a modern, unique place where they can come together, share ideas, and make amazing things.
Cahoots is so much more than a co-working space. It’s a gathering place, an event venue, and (soon!) even a coffee shop — but most of all, it’s a community.
This is a place of endless possibilities. To make it all happen, we need partners to be in Cahoots with us!
From the single person upstart to 100 person operation - all are creative, hungry, growing and ambitious.
Founders, CEOs, Software Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Marketers, Sales Execs, and more on board.
Cahoots is home to a variety of venture-backed technology companies that are attracting resources to build the future.
A home-basE for startups like no other
Ann Arbor deserves a Tech Hub
$4.3BN and going up
Deal activity has been shifting away from top venture hubs. The midwest has a healthy venture ecosystem that continues to grow. According to Silicon Valley Bank, midwestern states have received 4.3BN of investment in 2018 up over 59% from two years prior.
Chicago has lead the country on Multiple On Invested Capital (MOIC) at 5.6x versus the bay area at 4.2x and Austin at 3.3x. Investment in the midwest has been leading to better return on capital. Top talent, affordable housing, and a better quality of life has moved the midwest, and specifically Ann Arbor, into a position of strength for startups.
