Tim Edwards

Where did you find your first employee?
We don’t hire traditional employee’s. We are however, open to offering persons that have the drive to start their own marketing venture an opportunity to distribute our mobile apps, websites, video productions, etc. Success in our world must come from a drive to be your own business.  

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
All capital has been generated through personal funds and revenue from the business itself.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
Doing business in Corktown has been great. The area has a great entrepreneurial spirit that feeds our creativity and desire to succeed.

Name an idea, policy or mindset from elsewhere that you would like to see this region adopt?
We feel that there is a rebirth of the American economy that is starting with small business. Detroit has been economically beaten down in recent history forcing an uprise of resiliant entrepreneurial minded people who have generated a way to survive for themselves. They have put ideas into action that may have otherwise been stifled by the giant machine of corporate America.

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
Firstly, I believe that we need to do it for ourselves. From there, any help exposing & promoting the great things that small businesses are doing will create an excitement among the youth. I think it would be fantastic if local government spending were to be focused on the local emerging small businesses for bid. I don't know too many little guys who wouldn't work hard for that money.
