Event description

Description

Local entrepreneurs are bringing businesses into Detroit, often focusing on just 7.2 square miles of downtown real estate. What does development mean in the city center vs. its neighborhoods? How does growth impact architecture and design in Detroit? What’s the benefit of being a brick & mortar location in 2018 rather than a pop-up?

Speakers to include:

  • April Boyle of the BUILD Institute

  • Detroit City Councilwoman Raquel Castañeda-López in District 6

  • Lisa Waud, owner of pot + box

  • Paddy Lynch, owner of The Schvitz

This is the second event in a series of events taking place between April-October 2018. Lawrence Technological University’s Detroit Center for Design + Technology (DCDT) Design Incubator will continue its creative economy-focused speaker seminar and workshop series, DCDT TALK, in 2018. DCDT TALK is meant to reach and support new and growing creative businesses in Detroit. For those seeking resources and guidance as they build business in Detroit, a selection of eight programs will be presented courtesy of the Hudson Webber Foundation and in partnership with its Design Incubator programs DCDT CoWork and Woodward + Willis, a student-led design studio.
