Our team was well represented at the awards ceremony for the 2013 Great Lakes Entrepreneur Quest Social Entrepreneurship Challenge. We had the opportunity to meet and talk extensively with experts in strategic planning, marketing and intellectual property, as well as meet and interact with an amazing group of social entrepreneurs that are energizing Michigan in myriad ways. Although we did not win an award, we received valuable and very positive feedback from contest judges, the experts we talked to, and from our fellow social entrepreneurs. Our awesome Innovation5 t shirts were a great marketing tool - folks kept asking 'how many people do you have here? They seem to be everywhere!"
