The Entrepreneurial Spirit of Detroit

In an effort to feature metro Detroit’s up-and-coming business leaders, DBusiness presents the first annual MBA Entrepreneur Spotlight. Our criteria was simple: We asked several business schools in southeast Michigan to recommend up to three MBA students who launched or developed for-profit companies before or during their enrollment. From that list, we’ve selected five exceptional entrepreneurs. This is not an awards program, but a recognition of regional startup companies that, despite the faltering local economy, appear destined for success.
