LaunchDETROIT invites area entrepreneurs to attend an Entrepreneur Meet and Greet to hear first-hand the experiences and successes of entrepreneurs participating in this multi-faceted Rotary-sponsored program.

The event is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, 2019. It will be held in the Ray Mix Room of the Heinz C. Prechter Educational and Performing Arts Center (EPAC) at the WCCCD Downriver campus, located at 21000 Northline Road in Taylor. Ample parking is available.

“We will have graduates of our program as well as current entrepreneurs available to talk about their businesses, which include a wide variety of products and services,” said Margaret Williamson, chair of LaunchDETROIT. “There will also be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and learn how they can participate. For individuals who already have a business or want to pursue a business idea, this is an excellent opportunity to meet with other entrepreneurs.”

There is no cost to attend and light refreshments will be available. To register for the Entrepreneur Meet and Greet on April 27, email
