What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
Bizdom U

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
We attracted our first customers from various insurance company offering discounted courses.

Name an idea, policy or mindset from elsewhere that you would like to see this region adopt?
"Innovation is rewarded. Execution is Worshipped," Dan Gilbert's Isms. We have a ton of people who can come up with ideas to fix Detroit, but what we need are tons of people who can execute on those ideas.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
No we have not currently promoted an intern, but we are looking to hire two more full-time employees within the next two months.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have received funds from the Bizdom U fund and also the First Step Fund.

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
The leadership needs to first get the momentum going on the first section of the light rail. It has proven in other cities to like Pheonix, AZ to instantly increase downtown traffic and spur more businesses in the area. I believe that as downtown begins to flourish, it will begin spreading to the other parts of Detroit and the suburbs.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
It would be the mentality that is the city versus the suburbs. We need to get everyone to buy into the notion that Detroit extends outside of the city limits.
