UM-Flint and Ann Arbor students tour Detroit businesses

Students from the UM-Flint and Ann Arbor campus spent a day visiting startups in Detroit, meeting with alumni and networking.

The visit was part of DTrek, a program in the Center for Entrepreneurship at the U-M College of Engineering. This was the first time UM-Flint students participated in the program, but organizers expect students from the campus to be regular contributors on future trips.

“The Center for Entrepreneurship organizes and runs Startup Treks to Detroit, Grand Rapids and San Francisco, which immerse U-M students in the entrepreneurial environment,” said Eric Bacyinski, the M Engage Michigan program manager within the center.
