This week is TechWeek in Detroit, Michigan. In light of the city’s transformation and economic recovery from its recent financial troubles, PowerMoves.NOLA, a vehicle that “acts as a catalyst, providing early-stage and high-growth minority entrepreneurs with access to capital, advisors, and the support they need to succeed”, and corporate giant Morgan Stanley have teamed up to ensure that minority business leaders and the next generation of entrepreneurs will be included in the new opportunities that have sprung up of late.
To this end, PowerMoves@Detroit was created. The weeklong $12 million dollar investment and education effort will include pitch competitions, boot camp and advice on how to grow or start a business.
Check TNJ.com out in the coming weeks where we’ll have a recap of the event and interviews with some of the participants including Carla Harris, Morgan Stanley- Senior Client Advisor, Managing Director; Alejandra Y. Castillo, Esq.- National Director of the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA); Earl Robinson-President, PowerMoves.NOLA; and more.
