For today’s episode of the Daily Detroit Happy Hour podcast, Sven Gustafson sits down with Amanda Lewan, who, along with the organization she leads, Bamboo Detroit, is part of flipping the script when it comes to entrepreneurship and startups in Detroit.

Bamboo Detroit is a co-working and business development space in downtown Detroit that started in 2013. Now in a larger home on Washington Boulevard (and having added an additional floor of private offices) they recently released a report about their economic impact. It also included some interesting details about women-owned and businesses owned by people of color.

It’s a wide-ranging conversation with someone making something happen in Detroit, and helping others make it happen, too. .

For full disclosure, in the past Bamboo Detroit has been a sponsor of the show, but did not sponsor this episode.
