Shannon Paul the social media voice of the Detroit Red Wings, has taken on bringing Startup Weekend to Detroit. If there is one thing Detroit needs right now, it is jobs, and Shannon is doing her part to create some new ventures here. Who knows, the next Google or Amazon.com could be born in Detroit this year.
We’re hoping to attract about 100 attendees with great ideas and deep skills, but once they get here we need to feed them — a free t-shirt would be a nice touch, too, along with some groovy stickers. We also need to make sure we have enough power strips and extension cords so everyone can stay connected throughout the event.
This way individuals and businesses can help us cover our costs with as large or small a donation as they please. Please also feel free to grab the widget and add it to your blog, website or other corner of the internet.
If your company is interested in sponsoring Startup Weekend Detroit, please drop me a line at shannonpaul5[at]gmail[dot]com.
More information on the Startup Weekend organization can be found at FAQ.
Please be sure to visit the Detroit Startup Weekend site for more information about the event.
