Ne Ideas 2015 Kick Off And Info Session says
The New Economy Initiative and the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation invite you to join us in celebration as we kick-off another year of NEIdeas: Rewarding Ideas for Business Growth!

This event is a special opportunity to mix and mingle with previous Challenge Winners and dedicated NEIdeas Ambassadors before learning about this year's program.

About NEIdeas:

We believe that a great idea can help a good business grow. NEIdeas is a program that celebrates existing businesses in Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park – rewarding those with the best ideas for growth. NEIdeas rewarded a total of $500,000 in cash awards to over 30 existing businesses in 2014 and its time to do it again!.

NEIdeas has two types of awards, the $10k Challenge and the $100k Challenge – but the program is about more than just the money. NEIdeas is about connecting small businesses to the resources they need to grow. Over 54 small business support organizations in the City of Detroit are helping to make local business’ ideas a reality.

In 2014 we received nearly 600 submissions, many as ambitious as Berry Gordy’s Motown or as simple as one more barbershop chair. Whether you sell records or cut hair, bake bread or brew coffee, fix cars or build computers – sometimes you just need an extra hand to grow.
