 Registration is closed for this event

Spark Workshop with Jay Rayford, Social Sushi

Moderated by Rachel Jacobs '02, Inzenka


Social Sushi is a networking organization for young professionals. The focus is to create a fun and friendly forum where social, cultural and economic issues affecting the city of Detroit can be discussed. Social Sushi also works with local non profits to hold fundraising events.

Session Questions
Social Sushi is looking for a permanent long-term customer acuisition strategy. Jay Rayford would like to brainstorm ideas for creating a long-term engagement model.

Social Sushi was nominated to participate in Spark by Detroit Nation. Detroit Nation, in support of some of Detroit's up and coming social enterprises, works with entrepreneurs who are not only improving the city by adding to its economic bottom line but have an environmental, civic or other community enhancing focus to help make Detroit a better place.


Spark provides Social Innovators with an opportunity to explore resources, connections and potential solutions to help their social ventures, by tapping the collective knowledge within Columbia University, and the larger entrepreneurial and social impact community in the New York area and beyond.

This workshop is open to all who are willing to bring their ideas, experience, and connections to help solve social and environmental challenges that these social innovators aim to address.
