Event Details

The OpenCo Detroit Festival


The best way to experience and learn about the innovation economy isn't in a stuffy ballroom - it is up close and personal and in its native habitat. Experienced marketers and conference organizers Brian Monahan and John Battelle would like your support for a new type of business conference called OpenCo, which we like to think of as a mix between a business conference and artist's open studio with the vibe of a music festival.  Dozens of the most innovative businesses in Detroit will open their doors to the public on September 12, 2013 - we hope you will join us.

This festival of innovation will celebrate companies that embrace a set of values surrounding the concept of openness: open collaboration, open communication, open community, open company and open doors to you. Attendees will meet these innovators in their native habitat and hear from the founders and executives about how they are trying to change the world and why. They will inspire you and help you make new connections, whether you are a job seeker, investor or simply a curious neighbor.

We already have a growing list of host companies ("HostCos"), who have signed on to open up their doors and share their vision.  Check out to see the most current participants!  

We ran a "beta test" of OpenCo in San Francisco last Fall and the one day event was a huge success. We had over 80 participating companies and 2,000 registered festival goers.

Here is a video that gives you a taste of that event: 


We hope that you will help us launch the first-ever OpenCo in Detroit.  We're expanding everything - the technology platform, the video coverage, the staffing, and the services we provide to HostCos and partners. We are increasing onsite video coverage so that these exciting stories remain told throughout the year and to audiences far and wide.

Please help us support some of Detroit's most exciting and dynamic companies...

John Battelle and Brian Monahan
