Techweek isn’t just for Techies Anymore!


Something exciting is coming to Detroit May 2nd to May 8th! Techweek!

Amanda Signorelli, CEO of Techweek, tells us that the festival is not just for Techies! The weeklong event offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to connect with just the right mix of people who can help them get to the next level. They may meet the perfect founder, or the investor ideal for their business or idea, companies to partner with, and even talented people to add to their team.

Talking with entrepreneurs and investors is just part of Amanda Signorelli’s job as CEO of Techweek. Putting together Techweek, a community-driven festival that happens in multiple markets throughout the country, has allowed her to realize that entrepreneurs all define success a little differently. Yet, to gain success she points out, “they all have a willingness to take risks, incredible courage with impressive grit and resilience that often defines their success.” They also have conviction and passion to keep driving forward to their vision, whether it’s through the trials that come from forging their own path, or being relatively alone and taking that energy to move forward and attain their vision.

If this describes you, then you need to listen to The Trep Talk podcast this week as Amanda, our interview guest, will reveal the obstacles and of putting together a weeklong event whose mission it is to spread entrepreneurialism throughout the world.
