Join TechTown Detroit to celebrate the hustle and hard work of 14 Retail Boot Camp: E-commerce & Home-based Edition graduates at the program’s first cohort showcase.
Join us for The SHOP at Showcase, starting at 4:30 p.m., to meet, shop and sample goods and services from the cohort graduates. At 6 p.m., graduates will pitch their business and answer questions from the judges! See how these businesses will make their visions a reality with what they learned during RBC: E-commerce & Home-based Edition.
Four standouts will each win a $3,000 Kickstart Award, and one People’s Choice Award winner will be chosen by YOU during the event, to receive $1,000! All graduates will continue their journey after RBC with TechTown at their side.
