The Entrepreneurial Spirit
In society today there seems to be a social stigma surrounding the idea of doing right by our bother’s and sisters. Some would call it having good or bad social responsibility.

Mr. Austin Black grew up in Detroit and was always fascinated by the architecture and surrounding buildings. Over the years he has watched as allot of the rich heritage and buildings decline and become abandoned.

In Mr. Black’s words, “The city is now going through a reinvention of, what do we become?” As the city begins the process of rebuilding and putting those old builds back into use, he intends to show the people that the city of Detroit is a viable place to live through opening there eye’s with the rich heritage and then selling the newly renovated properties. This in turn would bring life back to the community, as he sells and makes available new properties, then new business’s will prosper and commerce will begin to grow again.
