We'll meet the makers, doers, and dreamers with the audacity to build from decay.

We’ll learn how one company reimagined the parka as a sleeping bag for the homeless, how the busiest fire department in America runs on the smallest budget, and how the city feeds itself from its own urban farms.

On July 24, 1701, a French explorer named Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac stopped his birchbark canoe at a bluff overlooking Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair. He told his 100-person crew to set up camp and start building a fort. Detroit was born. Now more than 300 years later, the city has evolved from a French settlement to the car capital of the world to a rapidly shrinking (and bankrupt) city on its way to revitalization. 

Join us as we explore the visionary leadership behind Detroit’s modern reinvention. This one-day, two-night journey through the Motor City is all about exploring redefinition. The kind of redefinition that turns an abandoned warehouse into a thriving tech company or bike factory. The kind of redefinition that just might save the city that put America on the road. 

BUT THIS IMMERSION ISN’T JUST ABOUT DETROIT. IT’S ABOUT YOU, AND HOW WHAT YOU SEE AND LEARN CAN HELP YOU EVOLVE YOUR MINDSET IN AN EVER-CHANGING WORLD. 

Whatever it is you are working to redefine—your business model, workplace culture, or even yourself—Detroit is the place to start.
