Highlights

The 2019 Quicken Loans Detroit Demo Day was the biggest and best yet, with over $1.2 million in funding for small businesses, nearly 5,000 people in attendance, and a musical performance by American rapper, actor and entrepreneur T.I.!

The field of more than 500 Detroit business owners who applied to pitch at Quicken Loans Detroit Demo Day was narrowed down to 15 finalists, who took the stage at The Fillmore on June 14. Ultimately, the top 7 companies were chosen to receive funding by our panel of nationally-recognized entrepreneurs. 3 People’s Choice Awards, with prizes totaling $75,000, were voted on by the audience through the Demo Day mobile app.
