Events like Michigan Emerging provide participants with the knowledge, skills and networks needed to grow, collaborate, motivate and dominate — contributing significantly to the future of Michigan.
“Michigan Emerging 2010 was extremely productive for me a s a newcomer to the Detroit area,” said Rishi Jaitly, formerly a Google Executive, the Co-Founder and Chair of Michigan Corps, and currently the Program Director of the Knight Foundation in Detroit. “Put simply, it empowered me locally with relationships, knowledge, and ideas. It opened doors that led to an invitation to join the Governor’s Transition Team and was instrumental in helping an idea crystallize for me called Kiva Detroit-a program that I have since launched that empowers Detroiters to champion local small businesses with micro-loans. The event was truly a turning point, advancing my career and making me feel locally involved and welcome. I look forward to attending the 2011 event.”
Michigan Emerging will bring together the resources needed to highlight and facilitate the change necessary to create great wealth and industry in Michigan.
It is a platform for celebrating the achievements being made statewide. An affordable and manageable event, it will provide entrepreneurs, inventors and small business owners the tool kit needed to succeed in today’s turbulent, competitive business climate.

The day will finish with an awards ceremony recognizing and celebrating individuals and companies that are leading the charge and succeeding.
“I had the pleasure of serving on the board and attending last year’s Michigan Emerging,” said David Behen, CIO for the State of Michigan. “It was amazing to see such a focus on the forward progress the State is making and the talent and innovation generating that change. After spending the day with all the right people, I was convinced that Michigan is emerging and I am glad to be a part of that.”
