OpenCo, a unique "inside-out" business conference, has selected Detroit as their next global destination for a celebration of open-style business. The event offers networkers, investors, marketers, job seekers and curious neighbors direct access to Detroit's most innovative companies to hear firsthand how they are changing Detroit and the world.

Participating companies have been curated because they demonstrate and embrace a set of values surrounding the concept of openness: Open collaboration, Open communication, and Open community.
On Thursday, September 12 from 9am to 5:30pm over 65 Detroit based companies will open their doors and deliver presentations to OpenCo registrants.
The event is FREE!
Firms like Shinola, Detroit Soup, WDET, Crain Communications, Model D, UpTo, Curbed Detroit/Eater Detroit, Quicken Loans and Detroit Labs have been selected to present as Detroit HostCos. The day will conclude at MOCAD with drinks and music.
"I knew Detroit was a perfect choice for OpenCo after I visited the city last autumn and saw all of these amazing companies doing innovative work,” said John Battelle, co-founder of OpenCo Festivals.
