DTX Launch DetroitChris talks with Betsy Creedon, Director of Entrepreneurial Services, at TechTown Detroit, about the DTX Launch Detroit Program. This is an intensive 10-week summer program for college students and recent graduates (including grad students) aspiring to launch a technology startup.

Participants will receive a stipend of $2,500 per individual (up to $7,500 per venture team) to test out their entrepreneurial dreams. This program can be considered a paid internship by some of the area colleges. It culminates in a showcase day, giving participants the opportunity to make a pitch to potential strategic partners, advisers and investors. Betsy closes out this segment highlighting some of the startup ideas.

Michigan Business Beat, hosted by Chris Holman, discusses economic development, new or unusual entrepreneurial initiatives, and successful business practices from different regions and industries around Michigan with a wide range of entrepreneurs and business leaders.
