TechTown plans to hold a market on Saturday, July 26th, 2014. This market will be similar to the Eastern Market that is held weekly in Detroit. The market will offer free food and music, while also allowing people from the community to come together and socialize. The market is supposed to increase the foot traffic within the Brightmoor community, especially on Fenkell Street. Only 10 percent of the store fronts on Fenkell Street are occupied. Tech Town hopes to bring people into the neighborhood and inspire them to want to create their own business. The process would be to bring in entrepreneurs to the market and offer them vendor space for the monthly market. Then they would hopefully progress into a real estate property that Tech Town has acquired. My project is to contact vendors and try and contact as many businesses as possible to bring into the market. I will be working on marketing component of the market as well. This entails building the website, managing Facebook and Twitter and creating flyers for the market. I will be working with the marketing team and some members from the SWOT team to make sure everything goes smoothly July 26th. The more people that come out the better! With the help of others, the outcome of my project would be to make sure the market is a success. This would ensure that Tech Town could hold more markets in the future. As for what I am doing for the city, I am working to bring foot traffic to the Brightmoor community as I stated before. This would hopefully eliminate the blight that is seen within the neighborhood. This could ultimately help with eliminating crime and violence while bringing resources to the area. This is so important for the area because without this the community will not prosper in the way that it has the potential to. I am really excited for the market coming up and hope everything does work out in order to help the community!
