What we're about

Renegade Detroit Investors is a different take on a real estate and entrepreneur group. No longer will we stand by and let complacency, unwillingness to change with the times, and a general disregard for innovation rule our business and investing. We will be the change we want to see in the world (thank you Ghandi) and especially in our region and City. We have a bad attitude for the norm and a great attitude for optimism, innovation, and entrepreneurship!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions these meetings will be much smaller. Shieldโ€™s very graciously allowed us to come back with restrictions. Regardless of how you feel about the politics of Covid-19 remember that Shieldโ€™s is privately owned, has had a very hard year of business and we do not want to be the cause of them being shut down.
