Between grand openings and announcing the winner of $50,000 from Comerica Bank in the Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest, the Franco team had a busy August, but we still managed to have a little fun. Here’s what we were up to in August:
Franco CEO Dan Ponder visited with different GMRENCEN tenants to learn more about health and safety during the second GM Global Health & Safety Fair. The GMRENCEN team planned a weeklong event dedicated to health and safety to make safety personal!
Rene and Lauren spent their Friday night helping announce the winner of $50,000 from Comerica Bank in the 2017 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest. The Lip Bar, Detroit Blows, Baobab Fare and Bar Botanica (the contest finalists), answered questions from judges after they pitched business plans to a panel of judges and an audience of their peers.
Team building at its finest! The Franco team split in two and solved puzzles at the Escape Plans in Detroit’s Penobscot. Only the Science Lap Alpha Only team (pictured above) escaped and the other is still Trapped In A Room With A Zombie.
There was a nerf war on the set of TV20! Lauren stopped by with Hatch alumni Connor McGaffey owner of Detroit Dart Club and Vittoria Katanski of Hatch Detroit to discuss the Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest before Ann Marie LaFlamme and Malcom Maddox battled it out.
It was an eventful August. We can’t wait to share what we fall into this September.
