The first Friday of each month, founders get together to connect, share their challenges, and be resources for each other. This is a casual meetup with no set agenda, just Founders helping Founders. Founders First Fridays is held in multiple cities across the state so all founders have a place to connect with the other great folks building companies here in Michigan. Hope to see you there!
