Event description

Description

Detroit’s rise coincided with the promise of tech startups galore. We were once dubbed The Silicon Plains. As we ponder the growth of creative industries in Detroit for 2018, we look back and evaluate if that status became a reality and what it means to live, work and play in Detroit as a creative professional.

Speakers to include:

  • Billy Strawter, founder of MILO

  • Dr. Jerry Davis, associate dean for business and impact at University of Michigan Ross School of Business

  • Edi Demaj, COO of Rocket Fiber.

This is the fourth 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 a 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.
