The Creative Ventures Program is our business accelerator for creative sector entrepreneurs in Detroit. Participants receive individual mentoring, project management support and coaching by professional leaders and experts.
Working with local leadership, we develop specialized outreach programs that present compelling business cases for those interested in locating or expanding their commercial operations to the city or investing in its creative sector.
We connect creative talent to global markets, advocate for policies and programs that support the local design and manufacturing of consumer products, and promote Detroit’s design and creative talent through a series of high-profile programs.
Bedrock Brands approached DC3 to assist them in the launch of their consumer products brand, Shinola, whose mission is to design, develop and manufacture innovative and compelling lifestyle products in Detroit.
