Our ProsperUS Detroit program held its 2018 Annual Convening on May 10. More than 200 people attended and 35 small businesses showcased their products and services.
The event featured a Pitch Competition in which four aspiring entrepreneurs competed for prize money by pitching their business ideas and needs to a panel of judges. Over the last five years, ProsperUS has trained 800 entrepreneurs, worked with over 200 small businesses through business services and workshops, and provided loans to almost 50 businesses.
The 2018 Convening was supported by Quicken Loans and Fifth Third Bank.
