Urban Innovators Reception

If you are thinking about, planning, or executing a business venture that is designed to improve the quality of life in the Detroit community, we want to hear from you! You’re invited to attend a special reception to share your perspective and to meet and network with others who share your passion for the city. Some questions we will consider and discuss during the reception:

  • What key Detroit community needs can be effectively addressed by entrepreneurial ventures?
  • What community need are you and/or your organization attempting to address?
  • How do you feel about the recent announcement of a Detroit-based “innovation center” to be produced by University of Michigan? What community needs would you like to see addressed by such an organization?

You will need a ticket to attend this event.
