The Next Generation: Empowering Detroit Youth to Become the Leaders & Innovators of Tomorrow

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

In today’s innovation economy, our youth need a mindset that equips them to recognize opportunity, take initiative, and innovate in the face of challenges. Participants in this session will work together to brainstorm ways to leverage existing resources in the community to cultivate entrepreneurial mindsets in our city's youth. A portion of the session will focus on hearing from Detroit students as they reflect on their experiences with entrepreneurship and what it means to be an entrepreneurial thinker.

Detroit entrepreneurs will be able to have an active role in a conversation that has real implications for the future of entrepreneurship in Detroit. They will be able to contribute to a vision for continuing to fuel the city's entrepreneurial flame by sharing their unique expertise and experiences starting and growing businesses in the Detroit area.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will walk away with a personalized action plan to use their networks, time, and resources to contribute to the collective development of Detroit's next generation of doers. This session will place an emphasis on action, rather than just discussion.
