About Champions of the New Economy

Junior Achievement of Southeastern Michigan, in partnership with DBusiness magazine and News/Talk 760 WJR, presents the Champions of the New Economy.

With the goal to inspire growth in our region, this exciting program recognizes business leaders in metro Detroit who are committed to moving our economy forward. A panel of qualified judges from DBusiness, WJR, and Junior Achievement will select up to six Champions of the New Economy for 2014, including an Emerging Champion of the New Economy (aged 35 and under). They will be introduced on www.dbusiness.com/Champions/, and be interviewed by DBusiness Editor R.J. King and WJR. The Champions will then be profiled in podcasts and in the May/June 2014 issue of DBusiness magazine.

The Champions Event

The program will culminate with an event on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 and will provide access to metro Detroit business leaders working together to develop southeast Michigan. Click here for more event information and sponsorship opportunities.
