TechTown Detroit is determined to create opportunities for anyone to start and grow a business.
Together, we’ll make sure the next economy includes everyone.
Justin Turk – Livegisitics
Livegistics is solving logistics problems for heavy civil and demolition construction businesses by providing a digital platform that makes it easier for multiple companies working on the same project to track their progress. With TechTown’s support Justin was able to access the startup funding he needed for their technology compliance and security audit. This Black-owned, Detroit-based company is now able to scale and partner on major contracts with a Fortune 500 company!
Jerome B. Brown and Samuel VanBuren—Detroit Soul
Sibling duo Jerome and Samuel opened their family-owned and operated restaurant in 2015 on 8 Mile to provide customers fresh, from-scratch soul food that “leaves a smile on their face and in their heart.” After their TechTown coach helped them forecast their finances and the concept was embraced by the community, they decided to expand to Jefferson Chalmers!
Maurizio Rosas Dominguez—Mexicut Films
Maurizio was being paid to makes videos, but didn’t know exactly how to make it a “real” business. So he signed up for a TechTown Open Office Hour to get some advice. Four half-hour meetings later, Mexicut Films is a registered LLC in Michigan, and he’s established accounting practices that have set him up for success.
