What is one thing Michigan does better or has going for it that other more successful regional economies don't?
The advantage we have here in Michigan is that we have many voids that need to be filled and problems to be fixed, which provides a smorgasbord of business ideas and options for emerging and existing businesses. I also feel that Michigan, specifically the Metro Detroit region, is one of the most helpful business communities in the nation, from existing business owners to entities such as MEDC, Ann Arbor SPARK and Bizdom U. We created PickMiDate.com as a solvent to various issues surrounding the dating world here in Michigan, making it fun with a game show like twist.    

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
Tap into the geniuses behind the Pure Michigan travel campaign and create a program geared toward retaining graduates from the myriad of universities housed here in Michigan and attracting graduates from colleges in other states.
