The D-NewTech (DNT) is an organization that provides resources and networking opportunities for the Detroit and SE Michigan startup community. DNT host monthly meetup events that encourages and highlights the entrepreneurship startups in the region. In addition, we collaborate with other organizations to provide meaningful events that will support entrepreneurs. We welcome members from any school, sector, or industry function (e.g. entrepreneurs, technologists, investors, lawyers, marketers, students, bloggers, etc.) interested in local high-tech or non-tech startups.

Our main event include an inspirational guest speaker who have lived the entrepreneurship experience and is giving back. Follow by 4-5 startup companies with 5 minutes to present and 5 minutes for Q & A, then open announcements and networking. The meetup takes place on the first Wednesday of each month. E-mail if you'd like to present or sponsor!

Please see our message board for jobs, events, and other opportunities!
