Crain’s Honors Michael Antaran (Again!)

Congratulations to our own Michael Antaran on receiving another great accolade! Michael was recently honored by Crain’s Detroit Business on its “50 Names to Know in Information Technology” list. The Founder and CEO of Marvel Apps (parent company of CARROT), Michael was also spotlighted in Crain’s for winning its “Healthy@Work” competition in November.

“It is a very interesting 50,” wrote Tom Henderson of Crain’s,  “a diverse group that ranges in age from 31 to 65, a mix of women and men, of races and heritages and scientific and informational interests, of people at small startups hoping to create a niche and at huge global institutions hoping to keep theirs.”

Michael’s inclusion on this prestigious list speaks volumes about the impact Marvel Apps and CARROT are having in Detroit’s mobile technology space.  Congrats, Mike!
