Startup Story Night

JANUARY 19, 2017, 6pm-9pm

This event is SOLD OUT. 


Southeast Michigan Startup and the New Economy Initiative are teaming up for a special night of storytelling for entrepreneurs. This year you've learned about some of Southeast Michigan's most successful entrepreneurs in our newsletter and at our High Growth Happy Hours. Come be inspired by five more business owners who are infusing their talent, energy and hard work into our region with their creativity and passion — and their resolve to never quit.  

On January 19, 2017, five entrepreneurs selected by a local committee through a competitive application process will present their stories to a live audience alongside special guest host Glynn Washington.  His program Snap Judgment can be heard weekly on over 400 NPR stations nationwide and is downloaded over two million times every month. Washington will also host a workshop the day of to help the five entrepreneurs hone their storytelling skills and fine tune their stories. You'll be the first to hear their polished stories.

Each story presented will focus on one theme:  the "a-ha moment" when our entrepreneurs realized their concept was working, really working.

Sound like fun? We think so too.

The five storytellers will be announced in early January.
