Detroit Hosting Largest Startup Ping Pong Challenge This Week

By Amanda Lewan on October 20th, 2014 / Comments

What’s growing a business without having a little fun along the way?

Detroit is aiming to host the largest ping pong challenge for startups all around Michigan. Entrepreneurs can represent their company or organization and sign up to play in the tournament. We know entrepreneurs are competitive, but it’s great to see something other than your usual pitch competition to get us all together.

The event is hosted by Bamboo Detroit and Detroit’s co-working space network Co-Lab Detroit.

“We think it’s important to get out of our work spaces. We thought this event would be social and also bring a healthy competition to the community,” said Nathan Liverman of Bamboo Detroit. “It’s a really cool way to have startups connecting and playing together.”

The event will be hosted this Friday, Oct 24th at Drive Table Tennis located in Downtown Detroit. There will be food, networking and drinks. The event is free to attend but if you want to play you’ll have to register. Tickets include dinner and your entry into the bracket. Startups registered so far include the host UpTo, Momentum, An Office in Detroit, and a dozen others.

This ping pong challenge is a part of Detroit’s Co-working week a week long event that kicks off today where Detroit’s co-working spaces open up their doors for a series of fun networking events. Metro Detroit now an estimated over 19 co-working spaces that are often home to entrepreneurs and creatives. It’s great to see members of the same industry coming together to collaborate, and to end the week off with some fun.

Get your ticket now before the 2014 Detroit Startup Ping Pong Challenge sells out.
