Techweek Detroit is back in Detroit and this time it’s at Ford Field, the Detroit Athletic Club, Techtown, Garden Theater + more locations.

The week long conference around the engineering, technology and startups is aimed at highlighting current initiatives throughout Detroit as well as fostering entrepreneurship.

For the second year in a row, Quicken Loans is the title sponsor behind the traveling tech show.

Throughout the week, Techweek attendees will have the chance to connect with young business leaders, as well established CEO, Directors and Presidents from some of the most influential companies in the Midwest.

The startup competition is a staple of the week-long conference where startups go before a panel of business leaders to show off their ideas. In the end, the winner gets more than $50,000 in cash and sponsor-donated gifts as a reward. They also get some good PR as the winner.

The official schedule is below. Be sure to check out the website for more information click here.
