Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest Well Underway

Jul 1, 2019 4:10 PM ET

With just a little under four weeks until the deadline to submit business plans, the 2019 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest is heating up this summer.

Entrepreneurs interested in opening a brick and mortar business in Detroit, Hamtramck or Highland Park can take their shot at winning $100,000 in startup funds by applying online at no later than July 31.

This year’s winner will become the ninth business to claim the top prize, but those who have reached the top 10 have also found much success in the city. In all, 42 Hatch alumni have opened for business with more openings to come later this year.
