The event will be held on Thursday, March 26th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at StockX, located in One Campus Martius at 1050 Woodward Ave. Detroit, on the 10th floor.

StockX is a live marketplace for buying and selling limited edition sneakers, watches, handbags, and streetwear. StockX separates itself from other online marketplaces and auction sites through their unique stock market-like variable pricing framework. StockX has experienced rapid growth since it's launch in 2015 and now employees over 800 employees in the Detroit area, and is among the fastest growing startups in Michigan. They have worked with celebrities and brands like Lebron James, Nike, Air Jordans, Gucci, Prada and more.
Although this is a networking event (you don't have to be looking for a job to attend), StockX is hiring. Visit StockX's page on PowerToFly to learn more about the company and their open roles.

Crises can bring out the best in us. It can be hard to believe that when headlines are crowded with toilet paper hoarders or raucous spring breakers under the impression that they're invincible, but it's true.
