TECHNOW09 EVENT CELEBRATING MICHIGAN BASED TECH COMPANIES SET FOR APRIL 23

If it isn't clear by now that the auto industry isn't going to be around forever, or at least not as behemoths with which we have become accustomed, well, it should be. What course of action the State of Michigan takes right now will have a profound effect on the future. That said, although it is increasingly clear that updating DetroitArmy with every event occurring in Metro Detroit is futile, the TechNow09 event caught my attention.

Three young twenty something entrepreneurs, Zach Lipson, Jordan Wolfe and Mason Levey, decided that they're sick (so am I), of hearing doom and gloom regarding young educated individuals leaving the state after school. In response, they've decided to plan TechNow09, an event which will be held at the Royal Oak Music Theater on April 23, which will include Michigan based tech company presentations, an interactive panel discussion with Michigan business leaders, a networking cocktail hour, and finally a concert by latin rock influenced Michigan band, Manolete.

Please take a look at the website for the TechNow09 event here. Tickets can be purchased for as little as $1 (or as much as you like) and will be donated to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Such events provide the perfect opportunity to help Michigan regain its stature as the nation's leader in innovative ideas and technology.
