Alok Sharma & Matt Dobson

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
We have participated in Detroit Regional Chamber, TechTown First Fridays, Detroit Startup Drinks and Ribbon Farm.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
We got hooked up with a Nurses Association by word of mouth.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
So far we've been able to bootstrap, we're self-funded.

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
They've helped quite enough already. They should sit this round out.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
Be completely open about what you want to do. Don't be afraid to share your idea. Nobody can help you if they don't know what you are doing.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
The low cost of living.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be? 
We need to explain to kids that employment doesn't begin and end at an automotive OEM or supplier. We need to explain to old folks that their kid can be quite happy working for a company that isn't Ford.
