DETROIT, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ida Byrd-Hill has been chosen as a Finalist to present in the Urban Innovation Challenge at the Inner City Economic Summit Transforming Urban Ecologies October 23, 2013 in Cleveland, OH.
Inner City Economic Summit is hosted by The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), a nonprofit research and strategy organization and the leading authority on U.S. inner city economies and the businesses that thrive there. Founded in 1994 by Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter, ICIC strengthens inner city economies by providing the most comprehensive and actionable information in the field about urban market opportunities.
Ida Byrd-Hill will present her urban innovation, inVENTURE TRIP™, in front of a panel of judges. Those Judges are:
Lee Fisher, President & CEO, CEOs for Cities
Wendy Sattin, Director of Neighborhood Economic Development, Neighborhood Progress
Robert Walsh, Commissioner, New York City Department of Small Business Services
Byron White, Vice President of University Engagement, Cleveland State University
inVENTURE TRIP™ is an Invention Lab and early stage seed fundthat caters to Black Males ages 13 - 23, to create businesses in the inner urban cities.
Music stars have glamorized drug gangsters, Frank Lucas and Nicky Barnes, as these gentlemen commandeered huge illegal business enterprises, generating millions of dollars, in a time when a factory was the only employment opportunity for Black men. Despite the bleak statistics, Black men dream to build multi-million dollar enterprises and have thus resorted to hustling and crime to earn a share of the American dream.
Most crime, in inner cities like Detroit, is due to the drug trade and competitive turf war. Research shows Black men possess the same entrepreneurial talents as mainstream entrepreneurs as they are able to build vast drug enterprises. However, they are selling the wrong product. If Black men had an opportunity to create legal inventions and products to combine with their genius entrepreneurial talents, the drug trade would be severely reduced.
inVENTURE TRIP™ Invention Lab and early stage seed fundhas the ability to change the trajectory of urban inner cities quickly and permanently. Join Ida Byrd-Hill in the Invention Revolution
