Y.A.B. is back at it again with a new event series and a new co-working space partner!
There are several change agents and curators helping to thrive the business economy in Michigan. With Y.A.B. being an advocate for women of color stimulating the business economy, we would like to use this event to be an inspirational resource to highlight the founders of these businesses as well as provide a networking opportunity for Detroit women. Through the business development entity of Y.A.B., we work with co-working spaces to change the narrative and bring more women of color to their resources to create collaborations and opportunity. This event series was created to showcase how entrepreneurs build their story in different industries to in turn inspire other women. The event is a summer kick-off happy hour that will feature guest speaker Aireal Taylor, Founder of Kidz Cab Trips
Aireal is "building on modern transportation" by owning a business that operates as uber for adolescents! She has been featured in: Black Enterprise Magazine, DBusiness, Michigan Chronicle, WXYZ, Fox 2 News, The Oakland Press, Oakland University Post, Oakland University News Bureau, and more!
Working alongside Build Institute, whom helps people turn their business ideas into reality by providing them with the necessary tools, resources, and support network in Detroit, we hope to help even more women of color develop their business dreams into business plans. To date, Build Institute has graduated over 700 aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs from their classes, with over 70% of those businesses being owned by women of color.
This event will also feature some of our Detroit Venture Partners as well as Build Institute graduates as vendors!
Y.A.B. Detroit Venture Partners present will be: Fitcamp360, a personal training company that combines fitness and nutrition with holistic lifestyle coaching Napier Designs, an accessories and home decor party business Sumptuous Spirits, LLC, a full service mobile bartending company that provides superior services for social/corporate/private parties
