Tonight’s episode of IT in the D is going to be a good one.
If you’ve ever thought about opening up a business, this one’s going to be full of good stuff…
We’ve got Amanda Lewan, the editor and community manager for Michipreneur coming in-studio with us to talk about startups. We’ll chat with Amanda about common pitfalls and things that you should be thinking about if you’re looking to start something on your own.
We’ve got Hatch Detroit coming in to talk about their $50,000 contest for startups downtown, and they’re bringing their four finalists who will be announced today. We’ve been keeping an eye on the contest thus far, and there are some great ideas in there…and a couple we’re scratching our heads over a bit. It’ll be interesting to see the final four, and have them in with us looking to convince us, and you, that they deserve your vote to walk off with the $50,000 prize and get a business started.
