Summer BUILD registration is now closed. Thank you for your interest!



D:hive is actively seeking social, cultural and economic entrepreneurs interested in making their ideas a reality through its eight-week small business and project planning class.



BUILD is taught by local experts and covers all the basics of starting a business – from licensing to financial literacy, market research to cash flow and more. You’ll leave the class with a completed business plan, a cohort of fellow entrepreneurs in Detroit, and the knowledge and confidence to take your idea to the next level.

BUILD sessions run quarterly for 8 weeks, and are offered on a flexible basis including daytime, evening and weekend sessions to accommodate busy schedules. Classes are priced on a sliding scale based on annual household income and family size; generally costs range from $200 – $500. If accepted into the class, all students must submit a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold their spot.
