10/1/17: Motown Mansion / Diversity & Venture Capital

Last Updated by American Black Journal Editor on

On the next American Black Journal: One of Detroit's most famous private residences is having an estate sale and global auction. We'll talk with the homeowner who recently sold the Motown Mansion and is now selling memorabilia that she bought from the previous owner, Motown founder Berry Gordy.  Also, only 1-percent of start-up companies funded with venture capital have Black founders. We'll talk about the efforts to increase minority leadership in start-ups and early stage companies, plus we'll get an update on the statewide competition that recognizes the best and brightest seed stage businesses.
