Detroit may not be near Silicon Valley, but that’s no reason tech-savvy entrepreneurs shouldn’t come to city to share what they know. To do that, native Detroiter Delane Parnell started Fifty Founders, a group he hopes will meet monthly (read more at Detroit Unspun). This Friday, Fifty Founders will kick off their first get together with a fireside chat with Brian Wong, co-founder and CEO of Kiip, a mobile-rewards network. The 22-year-old started the company with friends three years ago and raised more than $15.4 million since then. Tickets to the event already sold out twice, so Fifty Founders decided to open up thirty more seats to their fireside chat. In other words, act fast.
