ROYAL OAK – Startup Week Detroit Co-Founder Monica Wheat talks about her week-long entrepreneurial extravaganza in downtown Detroit going on this week on a new indoor-outdoor campus that spans Grand Circus Park and adjacent buildings, including Bamboo Detroit.
Now officially called Techstars Startup Week Detroit, the event is moving out of its previous home base, the Masonic Temple. She expects upwards of 10,000 people to attend, up from about 6,500 last year.
It is a free, weeklong collection of panel discussions, speeches, activities, networking and competitions. Quicken Loans Demo Day will return, as well, with companies pitching live for a total of $1 million in awards.
