Bizdom U Seeks Aspiring Entrepreneurs In Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Bizdom U, an entrepreneurship accelerator, is seeking up to 20 entrepreneurs to join its Fall 2011 Detroit training session.

Located in TechTown, Wayne State University’s research and technology park, Bizdom U provides entrepreneurs with all of the training, resources and mentorship necessary to start and operate scalable businesses.

Entrepreneurs accepted into the four-month, full-time program receive training, a living stipend, laptops, smart phones and class materials – at no cost to them.

Participants who complete the program and prepare an approved plan for a viable Detroit-based business may receive start-up funding from the nonprofit Bizdom U Fund of up to $100,000.

The comprehensive application and selection process is designed to discover those who have a passion for building something of value while enhancing the community.

“Being an entrepreneur in Detroit means so much more than simply being a business owner,” Ross Sanders, CEO of Bizdom U said in a statement. “It’s a commitment to the city and the people that continue to shape the future of the region and is a responsibility that can’t be taken lightly.”

The application deadline for the Fall 2011 Detroit training session is June 3, 2011.
