Wyclef Jean To Perform In Downtown Detroit May 25 As Part Of Creator Awards & Demo Day


Detroit’s entrepreneurial scene feels a bit more like Silicon Valley, with more stars. It was like that earlier this week Hill Harper buys into the roastery and buys a house in Detroitand later that month, Wyclef Jean will appear at a limited show in downtown Detroit as part of the WeWork Creator Awards and Quicken Demo Day.

The event on Thursday May 25th will consist of four parts. Let’s explain the collaboration between the WeWork Creator Awards and Quicken Loans Detroit Demo Day.

The first is a creative fair that the international cooperation space WeWork (they also have a location in Detroit) is putting together on May 25th in Cadillac Square. From 11 a.m. there will be workshops, a pop-up market, local food trucks and a job fair.

The workshops will be moderated by Tom Lewand, CEO of Shinola. Lianne Lynn, Mind Tough; Michael Rafferty, Detroit Economic Growth Corporation. There will be a Creator Award Portrait Studio by Jeremy Deputat.

According to the event listing, the first 500 guests to tell WeWork they are coming will receive $ 10 in credit for every purchase made at Creator Market.

Here is the RSVP for the fair.

Secondly, During the day, the finalists of the Quicken Detroit Demo Day will start. A project we wrote about earlier this year Quicken Loans makes $ 1 million interest-free loans to successful businesses. These take place in the Gem Theater and a jury and the audience can vote on the parking spaces created by selected entrepreneurs.

The third part starts at 4:30 p.m. for the WeWork Creator Awards ceremony and after party. The Creator Awards are part of a $ 20 million program to support ideas that “make your life work.”

Fourth is the achievement of Wyclef Jean. The e-mail says “Place to be determined” (there is also no exact time). The free RSVP includes food, an open bar, and entertainment throughout the night. According to the email you have to register in order to participate. Tickets cannot be bought at the door. This event is 21+ and you must have ID to attend. Follow this link to do it.
