The Detroit entrepreneurial community’s goals and visions are larger than life. To achieve those dreams, it’s imperative they have a safe space that allows them to engage each other, network, and cultivate successful businesses.
“Build Institute is an idea activator, and small business accelerator focused on equity, inclusion, diversity, and access to opportunity. Essentially, it’s the place where people with an idea can go to explore and nurture that idea. To discover how they can bring it to the next level.”
– Build Institute
To ensure their 3,500 SF space supported staff and client needs, Build Institute enlisted our talents for the redesign. As a graduate of Build Institute’s entrepreneur courses, Concetti CEO & Principal Designer Rachel Nelson was eager to give back to the organization that helped mold her into the entrepreneur she is today.
In addition to unique features clients already knew and loved, like entrepreneur-owned and operated pop-ups, Build Institute now offers access to coworking areas, conference rooms, private rooms, high-speed internet, printing services, a business address, and more. Plus, aesthetic details – like the Tiger Stadium print and custom wallpaper featuring Build’s brand color from Detroit Wallpaper Co. – honor the city’s past and present.
We’re excited to see how the space will serve the next generation of Detroit entrepreneurs and in turn, see the amazing things they’ll cultivate within our community.
“Teal accent walls, modern white and green chairs, and orange pillows help create a vibrant, modern atmosphere. “We worked with Concetti Studio and Rachel Nelson , a Build Institute grad, to design the space. The thought behind the space was to be flexible, bright, welcoming, and reflect the entrepreneurial spirit,”
