Our impact

Ryan Mater Co-founder & Operations Manager, Hybrid Robotics

“Our company wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for 20Fathoms and all of the support and motivation we’ve received. We’re so grateful to be part of the Traverse City startup community!”


Meredith Anderson Brand Director, Stout Collective

“I love the flexibility of working from home (and my dogs appreciate the company) but the buzz of other people working helps me focus and break through creative blockages. I live near the TART trail so I can bike here, and the community that 20Fathoms has brought together is really exciting to be surrounded by.”


Stephen Johanson President & Founder, Starboard Solutions Corp.

“20Fathoms, first and foremost, are just a good bunch of people. Part of the challenges of being an entrepreneur and working on your own is encouragement. Having a place to go with some progressively-minded people who you can knock ideas around with, go to lunch with, talk about your dogs with…it’s just a great community.”
