Bizdom U = Better Detroit, More Industry
A good article appeared in the NYTimes about Dan Gilbert (from Quicken Loans) and his program called Bizdom U– sort of a derivation of “The Apprentice” right here in Detroit. The “tutorial internship,” a four month business development program, takes applicants through a comprehensive, real-world training, mentorship and support program to get their business idea up and running. The idea is to create an “entrepreneurial ecosystem” to get the ball rolling on some businesses that will make a difference for the city and state. All said and done, the focus is on ideas and companies with a long-term focus and high growth prospects to change the landscape of a city and brings jobs. See the NYTimes article here.
Speaking of business, the cyber shelves have been re-stocked and the Etsy store is now pumping again with tees and things available for purchase. More items are being added throughout the course of the week, including new designs, like those from the Canfield Street Market (photos from the street market are now posted on Facebook!).
