There’s a guy looking to build more connections between Detroit and Toledo than the Tigers and Mudhens baseball teams.

That guy is Mark Pannell, and his event series is called “DETxTOL.”

Both cities are experiencing a refocus on place-based entrepreneurship. That means starting businesses that benefit and serve a geographic place and also provide jobs in that place.
