    Patronage? Start Garden isn't a system of patronage. They are not giving money away. They are a venture capital business that is investing money into your idea for a good piece of your business in return.
    It's had to say where the venture capital is coming from for Start Garden but it's a good bet that much of it is coming from Devos's evangelical and ultra conservative politically active family. This is a family that has spent boat loads of money on a national religious school voucher program and fought LGBT rights legislation. They have been a driving force behind Michigan's new Right To Work union busting bill. Not GOOD at all.
