TechTown’s “secret sauce” is our Professional Services Network(PSN)—an extensive network of professionals from our community who offer their expertise to help Detroit businesses develop, launch, stabilize and grow. Areas of expertise represented in our PSN include accounting and finance, architecture and design, legal, marketing, health care, venture capital and morel. Our PSN members donate their time or significantly reduce their rates as their way of giving back to Detroit’s business community.
There are many ways to participate in our PSN, including:

You may offer consultations once a year, once a month or once a week, depending on schedules and demand.
