A big thank you for helping us make 2016 successful, and we're looking forward to growing into 2017 and continuing to create value for our members and for the community that we serve.
Here's a recap of our big successes so far: invited speaker at Wayne State University School of Medicine, pitched at Detroit SOUP, vendor/community participant at Open Streets Detroit, vendor at Detroit Homecoming, Build Institute Graduate, Motor City Match Winner for a $50,000 grant, TechTown Retail Boot Camp graduate, Winner of the Retail Boot Camp Showcase pitch competition with a $7,500 prize, began making house calls and serving our members, invited speaker at the 30th Detroit PechaKucha night, signed our first small business up for services, signed a lease for a new office at 1759 West 21st Street, and began renovating the space for use in 2017.
Looking back, 2016 was filled with challenges and opportunities. I look forward to more of these challenges and opportunities in 2017 - see you in the New Year!
