Kelly Lapierre is the cofounder and partner at Venture Catalysts, a non-profit with the mission of building an inclusive entrepreneurial ecosystem in Detroit through strategic large scale entrepreneurship events and targeted growth programs. We provide leadership, training, and mentorship for founders and ecosystem leaders. Kelly has been an active ecosystem builder in Detroit since moving back in 2013.

On this episode you'll learn:

  • You moved back to Detroit in 2013 right as the city was declaring bankruptcy, how did the startup community evolved throughout those years?
  • What kind of work is being done to connect the Ann Arbor and Detroit ecosystems? Anything in particular that's worked well or lessons on what hasn't worked?
  • What sectors present the biggest opportunity for startups in Detroit?
