Description:

Join Patti Glaza, Kelly Sexton and Dug Song for a discussion on fostering innovation and the growth of entrepreneurship! The discussion, hosted by EntryPoint, will explore ways the community can better nurture startups (through policy, programs and culture shift), the impact of COVID-19 on the tech community, how we can build a more inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem, significant events that have shaped the startup community in the Ann Arbor region and advice for people thinking about starting their own companies.

This conversation stems from EntryPoint’s 2020 Ann Arbor Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Report. The report, which will be released on August 17, 2020, provides a comprehensive analysis of the high-tech community in Washtenaw County, one of the main hubs of startup growth in the Midwest.
