NewCo Detroit is just around the corner, and you can expect to see some familiar faces from Build IT Together throughout the sessions at the event! The conference takes place on April 13th, and ticket packages range anywhere from free to $100.00, and seats are running out fast!
If you enjoyed Dan Jefferies’ Build IT Together talk on culture and community, we’d love to see you at his session at 9:30 AM on Friday!
How Innovation WorksWhat does it take to be a more innovative organization? I talk to business and technology leaders who often say that they want to unlock the innovation in their organization, but they don’t really know where or how to start. This session will help you discover that starting point for yourself and your organization. Come and join me in a conversation about innovation, culture, robots, having fun at work and a lot more.

Time for a Change: Transitioning to a Career in Tech
Kick off your Grand Circus visit with an all encompassing tour beginning in our award-winning lobby. We’ll then walk you through our co-working space that boasts amazing views of Grand Circus Park. Finish your visit with us as CEO Damien Rocchi leads an open panel with alumni and current students as they discuss the career-changing decision to take an intensive coding bootcamp.
What is NewCo?
It’s an event intended “to celebrate the spirit of innovation that embodies so many organizations around the world.” It’s visiting over 60 cities internationally, and Detroit one of them. It’s a sort of cross between a typical business conference and an open studio tour. Instead of gathering in a ballroom, “the city’s most important founders and entrepreneurs invite you into their headquarters for one-hour experiential sessions.”
Once you’ve gotten your ticket, you’ll be prompted to register as an “attendee” of the sessions you plan to attend, so be sure to sign-on and support your Build IT Together peers, as shown below! We hope to see you there.
