Chamber to Host Detroit Startup Week Session on Relationship-Building Between Businesses and Entrepreneurs

The Detroit Regional Chamber is hosting a session at Detroit Startup Week, a new type of conference held May 22 – 26 that builds momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship, led by entrepreneurs and hosted in Detroit’s most popular entrepreneurial spaces. Startup Week is a reflection of the Detroit community’s unique entrepreneurial identity.

The stereotype of an entrepreneur is a millennial working out of their house or coffee shop. But more and more, corporations and the business community have begun to support and take interest in growing entrepreneurial spirit within their own workforce. With perspectives from corporate leaders, entrepreneurs turned CEOs, and intrapreneurs, this session will explore the growing support for intrapreneurship among corporations. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from a panel discussion and network with both leaders in the business community and fellow entrepreneurs.

Speakers include:

Jacquelyn Pogue, Talent Engineer, Disher
Melissa Price, CEO, dPOP
Jeff Ponders, Director of Innovation, Leo Burnett & Co-founder, Fido Labs LLC
Moderator: Mark Lee, Host, Small Talk Broadcast, CBS Detroit
