Event Details

Hey, Detroit! You're Invited...

The creative force behind 71 POP and the popular I Am Young Detroit website, is proud to announce Detroit Pop, LLC’s latest pop-up venture D:pop and the launch of I Am Young Detroit 2.0.

Detroit Pop, LLC

Continuing the innovation and groundwork laid down by the year-long 71 POP Project, D:pop will pick up where it left off, creating a unique retail experience and opportunity for local entrepreneurs to showcase a pop-up style retail installation in addition to featuring a static selection of locally made clothing, accessories, and goods for men, women, kids, and home.

The pop-up event will jumpstart momentum for the 2012 Hatch Detroit Contest, where Detroit Pop, LLC hopes to compete for a permanent space in Midtown, Detroit. The contest runs from June to August, where visitors are invited to vote for their favorite retail business idea for Detroit.

I Am Young Detroit

IAYD 2.0 will feature expanded profiles of young entrepreneurs - each one connected to a related educational how-to guide, interactive workspace, home, or business tour, business profile and real-time p2p experiences that will give readers the chance to connect.


CitySpotters

The new site will also empower citizens everywhere to champion young entrepreneurs via CitySpotters, I Am Young Detroit's new mobile and web platform that will allow users to earn points by ‘spotting’ a promising new business idea or movement led by a young doer,  by playing a ‘supporting role’ as mentor, resource provider, or educator, or by answering user-submitted questions. Points are then used to redeem local gifts and promotions that further support the young entrepreneurs featured on the website.


Come for the celebration, stay for the goods, food, music, and networking!

The D:pop Grand Opening/IAYD 2.0 launch will include food, music, networking, and of course, fabulous shopping! Attendees will also be offered the opportunity to sign up and earn their first CitySpotters points on sight.


This event will be held Saturday, June 30th from 3pm to 7pm located at D:hive Headquarters on 1253 Woodward Street in downtown Detroit. Get your free tickets today!
