Grand Circus

Sep 27, 2017 , 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the Harvard Business School Club of Michigan on September 27 for an event at Grand Circus in Detroit with distinguished HBS Professor Lynda Applegate as we discuss angel investing, the capital lifecycle, and entrepreneurship in Michigan. This is a must-attend event for people interested in angel investing now or at some point further along in their careers.

The event will start at 3 p.m. with a case study led by Professor Applegate. All event attendees will receive an advanced copy of the HBS “CommonAngels Ventures” case, along with some questions to frame the discussion. After the case discussion, we’ll transition to panel of HBS early stage investors to learn from their experiences in investing in Michigan. The event will conclude with a short discussion about HBS Alumni Angels, and whether there is interest in forming a local Detroit chapter. The program is expected to conclude by 5 p.m.

Following the event, attendees are invited to proceed from Grand Circus downstairs to the Broderick Grill for informal networking and a Happy Hour (cash bar).

Attendance is open to HBS graduates, Harvard graduates, and guests.
