BUILD is a business and project planning class designed for aspiring and established entrepreneurs. To this day we have graduated over 250 entrepreneurs, many of whom have gone on to start successful businesses in Detroit, including Detroit Vegan Soul, Good Cakes and Bakes, and Flash Delivery, just to name a few. Our graduates come from all corners of the city, representing 65 zipcodes. By joining the BUILD community, you’ll receive personalized support, expert advice and mentorship while learning in an open, diverse, and highly collaborative environment.


Whether you have an existing business, a business plan in progress, or simply an idea, stop by 1253 Woodward to chat with us about what we have to offer! We now offer BUILD office hours on Mondays from 11am-1pm with our BUILD resident Jessica.
