Next week’s OpenCo Detroit Festival exists to give anyone interested in the companies presenting — otherwise known as “HostCo’s” — an inside look. So that’s just what we’re going to give you.
Join us Thursday to get unfiltered access to LevelEleven, both as a tech startup and team of Detroit advocates.
First, you’ll hear from LevelEleven CTO and salesforce.com MVP Kevin O’Hara, who will introduce the company and chat about what it’s really like being a startup in Detroit.
Then, Craig Dulman and Felipe Gonzales-Paul, both from the LevelEleven sales team, will join the discussion. As is the case with so Michigan natives, Craig and Felipe fled for big cities outside of the state as young adults. Except then they came back to be part of Detroit.
To close it out, the three will leave time for any questions you have regarding the company or the city or other curiosities.
We promise to make it fun, so you should probably check out the details below. But just in case you’re unfamiliar with OpenCo, we’ll give you this first, courtesy of the OpenCo Detroit website:
Experienced marketers and conference organizers Brian Monahan and John Battelle would like your support for a new type of business conference called OpenCo, which we like to think of as a mix between a business conference and artist’s open studio with the vibe of a music festival. With your help, more than 60 of the most innovative businesses in Detroit will open their doors to the public on Sept 12.
This festival of innovation will celebrate companies that embrace a set of values surrounding the concept of openness: open collaboration, open communication, open community, open company and open doors to you. Attendees will meet these innovators in their native habitat and hear from the founders and executives about how they are trying to change the world and why. They will inspire you and help you make new connections, whether you are a job seeker, investor or simply a curious neighbor.
Okay, now for those details…
