<em>Last summer’s DCDT workshop series, which featured free panel discussions like “How to Women Succeed in Business in Detroit” that featured Moderator Karen Evans, Unsold Studio’s Lilian Crum, Cari Easterday-Karr of Midtown Inc., Photographer Emily Berger and Kiki Louya, co-owner of The Farmer’s Hand in Corktown.</em>

For those looking for more resources and insight on how to navigate issues facing small businesses in Detroit, a continuing series hopes to offer resources and address some of those concerns. Lawrence Tech’s Midtown Detroit Center for Design + Technology (DCDT) will host eight monthly talks, covering everything from bridging the gap between the core and the neighborhoods, to when to leave your day job to start your own business, to how to fail. The talks start Wednesday, April 11 with a panel discussion on Mobility in the City.

The first DCDT Talk will host speakers Bill Canning, vice president of GenZe by Mahindra; Jason Hall, founder of Slow Roll; Ian Thibodeau, automotive writer for The Detroit News; and Michael Wayland, automotive writer for Automotive News. The discussion will look at different transit options in the city, from Lyft to the QLine to Detroit’s bike culture, and discuss these options and how autonomous vehicles might factor into the future.

DCDT Talks will be held from 6-8 p.m. on April 11, May 9, June 13, July 18, August 8, September 12, September 26, and October 10 at DCDT, 4219 Woodward Avenue. Free coworking spaces are open each day of the discussions at DCDT. The talks are free and open to the public.
