Networking Event Bootstrapped, Hosted by Venture Park and Traffic Digital Agency, Attracts Dozens of Detroit Start-ups and Entrepreneurs

Venture Park Phase One

I think Royal Oak has a lot to offer for start-ups and can't wait to meet more.

As the weather heats up in Metro Detroit, small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs will gather in Downtown Royal Oak to network and socialize. This networking event, called Bootstrapped, will be held at the end of May and is open to all entrepreneurial individuals in the Southeast Michigan region. Event host Venture Park is a new tech incubator that aims to bring these individuals and small companies together under two roofs—one that houses co-host and sponsor Traffic Digital Agency and its affiliate companies, and the other housing all other interested parties.

Aside from a month off in April, Venture Park has thrown its Bootrapped event at the end of every month since last December. Hundreds of guests have been in attendance, representing freelancers, start-ups, established businesses, and other business incubators.

Graphic and web designer Laura Eagin, who has attended multiple events, says, “It is a nice place to run into local creative and tech entrepreneurs, and I appreciate that it's an open event. One of the best ways to find out about new businesses in the area is to meet their team members in person. I think Royal Oak has a lot to offer for start-ups and can't wait to meet more."

Bootstrapped will be held on Wednesday, May 29 at 7pm and catered by local restaurants Oak City Grille and 212. In attendance as a guest speaker will be David Farbman, the Founder and Chairman of Outdoor Hub and prolific public speaker.
