First National Building, Ann Arbor tech, Ann Arbor news
The First National Building on Main and Washington, at the heart of what many people don’t realize is downtown tech city, Michigan. Up the block, Censys, JSTOR, Llamasoft, Blue Newt, Cahoots’ new co-working space, and many many more startups and University of Michigan ventures in entrepreneurship, business, and medical, automotive, and sustainable energy.

Until they develop the technology (waiting), we can’t be everywhere at once, and that’s what it takes to attend and cover all Ann Arbor tech events these days. So, here is a list of some tech events going on in May in Ann Arbor, plus some great lists to follow who can keep you in the loop. Have fun! This isn’t exhaustive, so feel free to contact the editor to have another event added to the list with the Subject Line: EVENT CALENDAR. BE SURE TO SHOUT IN ALL CAPS SO YOU DON’T GET IGNORED IN OUR EMAIL INBOX. Thank you.
