I had the pleasure of attending an awesome event, Detroit SHIFT, held at Michigan’s Ross School of Business last week. The Revitalization & Business organization, comprised of Ross School of Business MBAs, hosted this two-day capstone conference featuring prominent industry and city leaders and entrepreneurial change agents. The conference examined how business issues contribute to Detroit’s progress and transformation through vibrant speakers, in-depth panel discussions, and an interactive, fast-faced IdeaLab co-hosted by Model D Media.
I left Detroit SHIFT extremely encouraged by the numerous initiatives sprouting up through the eyes and hands of young people throughout Detroit. I was so excited that I wanted to to share a recap with you, including the major points made by these change agents during their company presentations.
