CoFoundersLab is launching a Metro Detroit version of its online matching portal for entrepreneurs from downtown Detroit next week.
The Maryland-based firm specializes in making online portals that help entrepreneurs connect with a variety of people that can help them build their startup. Each portal specializes in a specific metropolitan area or a university community.
It is opening the Detroit hub because of the area’s emerging tech sector. CoFoundersLab has also found a local ambassador from Detroit Venture Partners
to help generate usage of the platform.
"A lot of pieces just fell together," says Michael Hughes, vice president of community development for CoFoundersLab
CoFoundersLab is hosting a match party at Grand Circus

overlooking Grand Circus Park. For information, click here
