The spirit of entrepreneurship is strong in Detroit, but also - it takes resources to really get going.

That's where, since 2011, the Hatch Detroit contest has come in. One of these 10 businesses we talk to today will walk away with $100,000 in cash from Comerica Bank to make their dreams happen in Detroit, Highland Park or Hamtramck.

Today, I talk to all of them in elevator pitch format. And then you get to decide by going to and picking up to four you think are worthy, each day through noon on April 18.

Here's the rundown:

01:34 - Amarra Products

05:03 - Estella’s Vegan Dessert Boutique

07:06 - Harry Rich Clothier

09:21 - Khana

11:13 - Nada Dry Bar

13:39 - Natural Living By Design II

16:51 - Pique Earth

19:37 - The Gentleman’s Oasis

21:04 - Unity Community Barbershop

23:11 - Roller Skate Detroit
