Die Industriegeschichte Detroits legt den Grundstein für eine aufstrebende Wirtschaft, die von postindustriellen Unternehmen, Start-ups und vielen neuen Arbeitsplätzen geprägt ist. Wie kann in einer aufstrebenden Start-up-Szene der Zugang zu Förderung, Krediten, Venturecapital und Investitionen sichergestellt werden? Wie wiederum spielen sich Startup-Infrastruktur, Geschäftssinn und wachsende digitale Fähigkeiten zusammen? Bei re:publica Detroit dreht sich alles um “Access”. In diesem Track wollen wir den Zugang zu Arbeit und New Economy untersuchen.

Ein paar der Fragen, die wir uns stellen: Wie kann der Arbeitsmarkt in einer Stadt wie Detroit von technologischen Fortschritten wie künstlicher Intelligenz profitieren? Wie kann ein afrofuturistischer Ansatz zur Kryptowährung Zugang und Teilhabe erleichtern? Wie können digitale Technologien in Detroit und den USA zum Unternehmenswachstum beitragen? Kann Detroit wieder zur reichsten Stadt der USA werden? Welche Beispiele können als Modelle dienen?

Egal ob grüne FinTechs oder soziale Unternehmen, ob wertebasierte Geschäftsmodelle oder "SHEconomy" – zusammen wollen wir kritisch den Status quo der Arbeitswelt, der Digitalisierung der Wirtschaft und ihre Auswirkungen auf unser Konsumverhalten, unsere Kultur und unseren Lebensstil bewerten. Wir freuen uns auf Berichte, Analysen, Forschungsergebnisse und andere datengestützte Denkansätze zu diesen Fragen.

    Venture Capital isn’t for everyone. But for those who pursue it, access to VC checks and other key funding opportunities is disproportionately distributed amongst entrepreneurs and markets - despite key success prereqs being met. Both developing ecosystems and underestimated entrepreneurs (women, people of color, and LGBTQ+) bear the brunt of these disproportionate markets. We walk through key tactics of how we are hacking the funding structure and creating next level opportunity.

    Detroit and dance culture are synonymous. Motown songs and techno tracks bring positive energy to the mind and move the body, regardless of time and place. Yet in Detroit itself dancing is prohibited after 2 a.m. This discussion led by the Detroit-Berlin Connection aims to shed light on how local laws must be changed to allow 24 hour expression of what the city does best: innovate, create, change the world.

    What are 'diverse ways of thinking?' How can artistic intelligence help leaders produce innovative, imaginative ways of addressing 'wicked problems' or systemic issues?

    Imagination is not one skill or muscle, but a system of capacities for perception, sensing, discernment, insight, activity, choice-making, and divergent synthesis. This interactive talk offers ways to think about a community or team's aggregate breadth of imagination, and suggests how artistic intelligence can catalyze more.

    Now very close friends, Chanell Scott Contreras and Joanna Dueweke-Perez originally had a difficult time building a working relationship. Coming from different lived experiences, races, and positions within the company, the two had to make the radical choice of inclusion in order to get things done together. That path, however, was hard AF and fraught with vulnerability. It's not enough to "be a good person."
