Bhargav Sri Prakash

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I have taken classes at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business and I have participated in the Kauffman Education Ventures Program, a.k.a. KLABS.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
OptimalCAE, a tier-1 automotive supplier.

Where did you find your first employee?
At the University of Michigan.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
Yes, I have done it nearly half a dozen times.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have generated revenue from customers and now through the Kauffman Fellows network.

What do you see in Metro Detroit that other people who live outside the area don't?
Metro Detroit has a talented workforce and a relatively lower cost of doing business.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
We need a risk-taking culture and risk-capital that aims to develop scalable business ideas. We also need greater initiatives from big businesses in the region to buy local and to treat local businesses with higher priority in their contracting process.
