Event Details

Help Grand Circus pick the hottest startup in Detroit! Winner goes to Silicon Valley to pitch to Google!

Grand Circus is one of only seven Google for Entrepreneurs Tech Hubs in North America, and as such we have the opportunity to send ONE of our Detroit startups to a Google-hosted Demo Day in Silicon Valley this April. Competition is steep, and we want you to be a part of the decision! 

Join us for a Trade-Show style event where twenty startup semi-finalist will display what they do and compete for your "investment"! Each attendee will be given three wooden nickels to pass out to the startups of their choice, and the three startups with the most wooden nickels at the end of the night go to the finalist round! Winners will be announced at the end of the night! 

As this event will replace our monthly "Beer and Builders" event, local microbrew will be served free (as per our normal custom).
