Join Patti Glaza, Justin Mast, Trina Scott, and Monica Wheat for a discussion on fostering innovation and the growth of entrepreneurship! The discussion, hosted by EntryPoint, will explore ways the community can better nurture startups (through policy, programs and culture shift), preserving diversity and strategies for building a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem, the impact of COVID-19, significant events that have shaped the Detroit region and advice for people thinking about starting their own companies.
