Congratulations to my University of Michigan IOE 422 class on completing their investor presentations this week. The business ideas the students proposed were pretty novel, but most important, they gained valuable insight into the process of developing a business model and pitching that business to potential investors.
That’s me standing with some of the representatives from SCORE Detroit. The SCORE folks formed the investor panel, as they have done for years for this class. They always give the students a firm grounding in reality. We appreciate their time and expertise.
The students really took their presentations seriously, and they came fully suited and booted — a really professional-looking bunch.
