Founder: Leann Abad

Hey! I'm Leann, a contrarian at heart, community builder by profession, and content creator by choice. 

After a brief stint in San Francisco doing business development and digital media management, I came back to Michigan fired up about helping to build the entrepreneurial ecosystem statewide. 

I started ASHE to help organizations tap into the greater ecosystem by creating, curating, and speaking to their communities. 

I started the Michigan Makers podcast to create our own community as well as highlight the people making Michigan's comeback happen.

You can find me @leann_abad on all socials.
