Dickinson Wright Client, Adaptive Materials, Named Finalist for Entrepreneur Magazine's Entrepreneur of the Year Award

7/21/2009
Dickinson Wright PLLC congratulates Michelle Crumm, co-founder and chief business officer of the firm's client Adaptive Materials, for being named a finalist for Entrepreneur Magazine's Entrepreneur of the Year award. The award, which recognizes entrepreneurial leadership and excellence, pits Crumm against four other entrepreneurs from around the U.S. Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Adaptive Materials is the leader in fuel cell innovations. At the forefront of portable power innovation, Adaptive Materials is the first company to develop, demonstrate and deliver a portable, affordable, and fuel flexible solid oxide fuel cell system. Unlike other fuel cells, Adaptive Materials' systems are powered by lightweight, inexpensive and globally available propane. Adaptive Materials' fuel cell system provides portable power to the United States Armed Forces as well as industries including recreational vehicles, boating, and medical devices. "We are thrilled for Adaptive Materials and Michelle Crumm," said John C. Nishi, an intellectual property attorney in Dickinson Wright's Ann Arbor office. "Adaptive Materials is an innovative company, the kind that is putting Michigan on the map as a leader in portable power." "To represent Adaptive Materials in a national competition, much less to be the only woman finalist in the Entrepreneur of the Year competition, is humbling," said Crumm. "The constant culture of innovation at Adaptive Materials fuels our success in the market. Being a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizes the meaningful advancement of our efforts to bring real, portable power to soldiers in the field and consumers who want to go off-grid."
