        By Tom Henderson
        LevelEleven, a cloud-based sales-motivation software company, was founded in 2012 by Detroit Venture Partners and is based in the former Lane Bryant Building in downtown Detroit. In August, the Detroit-based Ascent Group made the latest investment, of an undisclosed amount, in LevelEleven, following an investment round of $2 million last year, which allowed the company to hire a chief revenue officer and a COO. It now employs 28. Customers include Symantec, Staples, a division of EMC Software and eBay. In April 2015, LevelEleven was the only early-stage tech company from Michigan and one of 12 in the U.S. to be invited to the annual Google Demo Day in Mountain View, Calif. Prior to founding LevelEleven, Marsh, 43, was senior vice president and head of sales at Pleasant Ridge-based ePrize Inc., now known as HelloWorld Inc.
