Lift: DETROIT is a Metro-Detroit nonprofit collaborative of young professionals, entrepreneurs, educators and creatives, who have partnered together to initiate and implement opportunities, strategies and solutions to building a stronger Detroit. Lift Detroit, commonly known as Lift, was created to break down the social barriers within the Detroit area that are hindering the young professional population from working together as a whole and succeeding; in a city that has historically thrived on professional innovations.
Lift Detroit is purposefully emerging during the revitalization of Detroit, with plans to write the next chapter of Detroit’s legacy. This chapter will deconstruct social barriers within Detroit’s professional industry, connect diverse groups of entrepreneurs, educators and innovators, and celebrate activities, events and programs that are geared toward the betterment of the city. Lift hopes to centralize the individual efforts made by these community leaders and produce a united effort that will “lift” Detroit.
