LANSING — Current college students and aspiring entrepreneurs are invited to attend this season’s edition of Live.Work.Detroit. on Friday, Oct. 24 at St. Andrews Hall in Detroit from 2 to 8 p.m.
Live.Work.Detroit is an informative career event sponsored by the Michigan Economic Development Corp. and hosted by D:hive. Participants are invited to hear from young Detroit professionals and an array of local employers, including Challenge Detroit, Lowe Campbell Ewald, Peacock Room, Quicken Loans and Salem Communications.
The event schedule consists of networking opportunities, a keynote presentation by Eric Larson, CEO of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, and an “insider tour” with the Detroit Experience Factory.
Downtown and Midtown Detroit have emerged over the past decade as a hot destination for young professionals, with growing high-tech startups, flourishing medical research, top design institutions, new restaurants — and still, by the standards of most big cities, affordable places to live.
Registration for the Oct. 24 event is $15, which includes dinner, a tour of the city and transportation. Round trip bus transportation will be made available from the University of Detroit Mercy, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, and Wayne State University.
For more information on Live.Work.Detroit., contact Jeanette Pierce, director of community relations at D:hive at (313) 962-4590 or firstname.lastname@example.org. D:hive operates a storefront Welcome Center offering information and connections to people interested in living, working and engaging in the city. Located at 1253 Woodward Ave., D:hive is a project of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, with support from the Hudson-Webber Foundation, Quicken Loans-Rock Ventures, Model D Media, the DEGC and others.
