In conjunction with Startup Week Detroit, Apigee and Techstars Mobility are hosting a one day event dedicated to mobility executives, entrepreneurs and API enthusiasts. Digital has changed the world, and the market. Your business decisions need to not only grasp the API revolution, but leverage it to reach business goals and agendas. Capitalize on this highly condensed day in Detroit, at Ford Field, to accelerate your “digital thinking.” Join Techstars’ mentors, Apigee’s customers, and API experts to get weeks worth of API knowledge in just a day.
