9-19-2013 GreenLancer.com Opened its Doors to OpenCo Detroit
On September 12, 2013, GreenLancer.com headquarters welcomed OpenCo Detroit participants into its new office building in downtown Detroit. OpenCo connects local thought leaders with the public to showcase companies within their city’s limits. GreenLancer.com CEO, Michael Sharber, and CTO, Patrick McCabe, spoke about how Detroit offered them many opportunities that other, more well established cities, could not. Programs such as TechTown and Bizdom helped connect these entrepreneurs with mentors to help them turn their vision into a viable business. High level executives made themselves accessible to brainstorm and advise on the fledgling company, something unheard of in established entrepreneurial hubs such as New York City and Silicon Valley. All in all, it was amazing to see how much interest there was in what is happening during this Detroit revitalization and how from it, innovation is being nurtured and rewarded.
