Extraordinary Ventures Michigan

Extraordinary Ventures Michigan

Extraordinary Ventures Michigan (EVM) is an unprecedented collaboration between Oakland University/Smiles for Children, Autism Alliance of Michigan (AAoM), and Judson Center. Our microbusinesses operate at OU’s business incubator, OUInc. Extraordinary Ventures Michigan is focused on creating employment opportunities for adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and researching the best practices for maintaining a positive environment to provide meaningful employment and improve quality of life.

What We Do:
The vision of Extraordinary Ventures Michigan is to create and operate multiple microbusinesses under the EVM umbrella that employ adults with ASD. These microbusinesses are developed and nurtured by OU student interns providing growth opportunities for entrepreneurship. Under the direction of the Judson Center, adults with ASD are placed into employment in the best match microbusiness for them and provided job coaching. Each business provides a necessary service to the OU community and the greater Rochester community at large.  

Laundry Service
The first microbusiness of EVM is a laundry service. Our services include free pick-up and delivery along with having your laundry washed, folded, wrapped and delivered within 48 hours. The employees do excellent work and will leave you thoroughly impressed with the results. This laundry service is available to anyone who is interested.

“I love the great laundry service that the group from OUInc. provides! They pick up and deliver our tablecloths, cleaned and folded the next day. Excellent customer service from their courteous staff!” -Analya Callendar
