Detroit Startup Week – June 18, 2018
Our team was thrilled to participate in the 2018 Detroit Startup Week, and share some preliminary findings with a broader audience. After spending about 20 minutes on these findings, we broke up into three groups, facilitated by the awesome April Jones-Boyle (Build Institute), Matthew Lewis (New Economy Initiative) and Amy Latawiec (Rebel Cycle Studio). It was wonderful hearing back from the groups about how the existing Detroit entrepreneurial ecosystem could be further strengthened.
Academy of Management (AOM) annual conference – August, 2018
The transition of cities — both in the United States and worldwide — brings into sharp focus the “new” kinds of work and careers that they entail. For a competitively selected Showcase Symposium at the the annual AOM conference, in Chicago IL, our team did a talk on how entrepreneurial careers fostered urban resilience in postindustrial cities. Based on our data, we presented some riveting narratives from Detroit, and we are presently working on developing a manuscript for submission to a scholarly journal on the topic.
