Today’s Millennials are masters of their digital worlds. They move seamlessly between conversations on various platforms, and they demand engaging digital applications that contain stimulating content. However, Metro Detroit’s emergence as an environment for digital innovation in the Edtech arena is disadvantaged. Our young people deserve the same level of support that students are receiving in other metropolitan centers such as New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and San Francisco.

Come hear and be inspired by 3 of Metro Detroit’s emerging Edtech pioneers as they recount their journey of how they are using digital innovation to help Metro Detroit’s youth step into the future and realize their greatness and full potential.
