BizStream takes pride in having a strong presence in Michigan. Although we have clients all over North America, Michigan will always be our focus and our home. Giving back is a key part of our company's values, and we've focused our efforts on youth and education, especially in technology. We believe that investing in the future of our community is not only the right thing to do but also aligns with our broader mission of making a positive impact through technology.

We are proud to be a part of West Michigan's growing technology industry and hope to continue to attract talent to this side of the state. It is amazing to see how specializing in a great technology like Kentico has allowed BizStream to grow from just two people sharing office space with another technology firm in Grand Rapids to a team of over 20 people building large enterprise-class websites for national brands. We're committed to continuing our growth and bringing more talent to West Michigan, and we're excited to see what the future holds.

BizStream is thrilled to be among the 50 companies selected this year that are making an astounding impact on Michigan’s economy by collectively providing thousands of jobs and contributing millions of dollars of revenue!
