Looking for …????

A person that will give an oral presentation with multimedia support about the history of Detroit. This will cover the beginning of the city formation.

What are the benefits of this location? Still relevant?

Projections of future possibilities.
Inspiration for people to dream, start conversations and get people moving to make Detroit Great in the future.

Huge opportunity…

Lots of open spaces
Low cost of land acquisition.

Region has smart and talented people. The need is to create a place where these people can come together to create.

Serendipity of people… Bring the right people together at the right time, BOOM! Something beautiful can start.

An IDEA → REALITY. ← MORE IDEAS, More improvements in reality. Ideas and improvement leads to opportunity.

Value creation.

NOTES: This was written as an idea for a presentation by a person to give to 50 +/- 40 people. Inspired while reading the Wikipedia page for Detroit. The post was written with a flow of thoughts. Little editing was done. It is mostly typed as the ideas appeared to me. 

The idea is that there are things we can learn from the past about the present and how to make a better future.

Value creation: Read this as being jobs for people and organizations. Jobs to be done if you will. Some things need to be done but the people needing it done don’t know it yet. It’s up to creators to build first and create value and thereby spur demand from customers. 

We don’t know who the RIGHT people are in advance.
