WE ARE

An activist investor focused on growing early stage technology-based companies in the Traverse City area.

A BOOMERANG IS

A person who grew up or summered in northern Michigan, moved away for education or career, and returns to the area for the quality of life. Boomerang Catapult comes from a desire to help those returnees launch and successfully grow their businesses and careers.

 

MISSION
