Jun 7th - Jul 31st


The Contest is an opportunity for one savvy entrepreneur to win a $50,000 grant & package of in-kind services to open their brick and mortar retail business in Detroit, Highland Park, or Hamtramck. We believe that independent retail helps define the character and personality of city neighborhoods and we built this Contest on the idea of crowd entrepreneurship— giving community members a role in the city’s redevelopment.
