Flint City Pop-Up (2016)
Co-Implementation Plan - 2016
Innovation Fellow: Joel Rash, Red Ink Flint
A city like Flint presents tremendous challenges to young people trying to start their own businesses. Yet Flint City Pop-Up worked to support emerging entrepreneurs through a combination of monthly meetings, regular pop-up shop opportunities, and hands-on mentoring. This strategy is of interest to educators, economic development professionals, and those interested in grassroots community initiatives.
