Stay up to date on Detroit entrepreneurs, events, research and more.
Endeavor Detroit is built on a strong network of people who understand the importance of supporting entrepreneurs as they strive to grow their passions into businesses that improve our community and economy. The Endeavor Detroit Summer Soirée brings together the many wonderful people of that network who support the Endeavor mission and more importantly Endeavor Entrepreneurs.
As we gathered together in August, we highlighted a major milestone for Endeavor Detroit and one of our entrepreneurs who embodies the Endeavor spirit to pay-it-forward.
Endeavor Detroit Board Chair Cindy Pasky (left) presented Endeavor Entrepreneur Geoff Horst a certificate of appreciation. Cindy and Geoff are joined by Endeavor Detroit Board Member Lynda Applegate (second to right) and Managing Director Antonio Lück (right).
One of the first entrepreneurs to be selected to Endeavor Detroit was Geoff Horst. He appreciated the value of Endeavor from the beginning. After selection, Geoff took full advantage of Endeavor’s resources making valuable business and mentor connections along the way. He experienced a significant business moment in March when his company Algal Scientific was acquired by Kemin Industries.
Geoff felt Endeavor Detroit played a significant role in his success and made a contribution to Endeavor Detroit as a thank you. And for that we are grateful. In addition to his contribution, the mentee now becomes the mentor. Geoff served as a panelist at our August Local Selection Panel. A true demonstration of Endeavor’s pay-it-forward mentality.
We took a few moments at the end of the Soirée to present Geoff with a certificate of appreciation to recognize “the entrepreneur whose ambition and accomplishments serve as an inspiration to the Endeavor Detroit Network and the Michigan entrepreneurial ecosystem”.
We are appreciative of our entrepreneurs and a growing network that fosters a thriving local ecosystem to support growing businesses in Michigan.
A special thank you DTE Energy, DROUGHT and McClure’s for supporting the Summer Soirée.
And a big thank you to all who joined us!
