Help Third Wave Detroit's Business Idea Become a Reality

For the fourth year Hatch Detroit is giving one local entrepreneur the opportunity to win $50,000 to open up a storefront within the Detroit City limits to push forward their business idea. The four finalists for the public to vote on were announced this week and voting will end this Wednesday.

One of the businesses in the running is Third Wave Music, whose intent is to open the first musical supply store in Detroit since the city's decline. There is literally no place to get a drum stick if you break it before a show, or to pick up some new strings without driving into the suburbs. This is not practical for a lot of the working musicians in the city, especially when these issues come up last minute. Third Wave Detroit wants to change this and made an awesome video to better explain their idea and vision. Watch the video below for details on their business plan. I already believed in this business, but watching the video sealed the deal for me.

If you would love to see this idea come to fruition head over to and vote once every 24 hours before the deadline this Wednesday, August 20th. Popular online vote is only half of the battle. The business still has to get up in front of a crowd and sell their idea to the judges on the 20th, but the popular vote gives them the competitive advantage that they may need to win. If you would like to attend the final ceremony click here for tickets to the event. In addition to the money, which comes by way of Comerica Bank, the winner will also get legal, marketing, accounting and IT support from the non-profit, Hatch Detroit.

We wish Third Wave Detroit the best of luck and hope to see them come out victorious. Take a moment and throw a vote their way!
