Power of Design Thinking: Neighborhood Entrepreneurship Challenge

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
