Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

***This event requires a second separate registration here****

Are you a young person age 11-20 that is interested in entrepreneurship, business, or coding? #CodeDetroit is for you!

CodeDetroit is a youth-focused business competition that brings together young Detroit designers, developers, entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to build a solid coding or app-based business idea in a weekend. CodeDetroit is open to any young person in middle school or high school who wants to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers.

Young people from all across Detroit are welcome to come together and network with other peers looking to become entrepreneurs. Once youth pitch their ideas, teams form around the top ideas and then it’s a 36-hour frenzy full of turning that idea into a business!

In the end, CodeDetroit wraps with youth team presentations to local business leaders and the chance to win prizes and share your business idea at a youth pitch competition in front of investors!

What you’ll need:

An open mind and cool ideas!
A computer (if not, don’t worry - we will have some available for you to use)
A signed parental permission slip - COMING SOON
A signed media release form - COMING SOON

That’s it! We will bring anything else you might need!
