August 28th: we announce the winner of the 2015 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest presented by Opportunity Detroit
For the fifth year in a row, ten businesses are going head to head again to compete for a $50K grant to open up their brick & mortar retail shop in the city.
This culminates in our annual Hatch Off, where our finalists face off Shark Tank-style and pitch their concepts to our panel of judges. The winner will be announced that night on the rooftop of the M@dison Building. We'll make a dream come true and you'll be a witness.
This is a celebration of all things local & small business in Detroit. Enjoy homegrown musicians & a DJ alongside a strolling dinner served by 2012 winner La Feria and beer from 2013 winner Batch Brewing. You'll also have a chance to bid on one-of-a-kind Detroit centric prizes at our silent auction, featuring:
A Brewing Immersion Experience with Batch Brewing
An "Honorary Tiger" Baseball Experience for Kids
Brunch at Gold Cash Gold Chef's table
A Two James Private Tasting Tour
Plus much more!
