Teams of Challenge Detroit Fellows have collaborated with ProsperUS Detroit and TechTown SWOT City on a 5-week community project to identify innovative ways to further support immigrant entrepreneurs and business owners.

Attendees will have a unique opportunity to join small group interactive discussion with teams of fellows and learn how they used a design thinking approach to community collaboration during their 2017 April/May place-based enterpreneurship project.

This interactive workshop will include several of the fellows currently in Challenge Detroit.
