BUILD NETWORK, formerly Open City, provides a forum for Detroit’s aspiring and established small business owners to learn, network, and exchange information in a fun and lively atmosphere.
BUSINESS PITCH OPPORTUNITY
Bring your business cards! Not only will you need them for networking, but we’ll also draw a card before our panel discussion. Whoever is drawn has the opportunity to break the ice by presenting the audience with a small business concern.
New to Open City! If you have a business and would like an opportunity to promote your service or product, we are now offering opportunities to showcase at Open City. Limited space available at each event. Opportunity includes a post on Open City’s event page on Facebook. Email Christianne@buildinstitute.org for more information.
ABOUT OPEN CITY
A program of Build Institute, Open City is a forum for Detroit’s aspiring and established small business owners to learn, network, and exchange information in a fun and lively atmosphere. Join us each month this summer at a new Detroit neighborhood location, where a select panel of speakers will discuss a relevant small business topic, followed by casual networking. Events are FREE and open to all with no rsvp required.
It was founded in 2007 by Claire Nelson and Liz Blondy and has since then evolved into a leading networking event for Detroit entrepreneurs, with local business leaders in attendance regularly.
