Think Detroit is “rebuilding”? Think again.

Here’s your chance to hear from a high-energy group of entrepreneurs telling the real story of Detroit’s growth. Your condescendingly gentle gaze is not needed.

Back in March, Technical.ly and Comcast NBCUniversal visited Detroit as part of our six-city event series, the Tomorrow Tour. We heard from crowdfunnding group Michigan Funders, resource-sharing startup PonyRide and accelerator TechTown Detroit. Even City of Detroit innovation chief Jill Ford popped in to talk up exactly how the city is aiming to grow its relationship with small business.

Get a peek inside the offices of Benzinga, Techstars and the Build Institute in this effortlessly beautiful recap by Tweed Video.

The above video is the shot; this high-level recap is the chaser. Enjoy.
