The duo that brought national attention to Detroit for the X Games bid will host an in-depth talk on their plans for a different, Detroit sports event at this month’s Fifty Founders event.

Kevin Krease and Garret Koehler will be share exclusive details about their upcoming plans. They will go over how they raised money, built strategic relationships with corporations, and attracted national media attention through awesome social media strategies including the video that went viral below.

Last month’s Fifty Founder event brought Founder of Kiip Brian Wong to Detroit. The event series goes in depth with industry leaders and founders to tell their story. The August Fifty Founder’s event will be hosted at the new co-working space Bamboo Detroit, on August 28th. Event tickets include free beer and pizza.

Last month’s event sold out fast, so make sure you register today. Thank you to Start Garden and TechTown as partner sponsors, and Bamboo Detroit as a venue sponsor.
