Fast forward 5 years, I’m developing software at a startup in Detroit and can honestly say that I have no regrets with the path that I took.
As Autonomic is a company that is building the first open cloud-based mobility platform to create a more efficient and sustainable transportation network in the Motor City, partnering with the Hacker Fellows program was a no-brainer. Together we are building a network of startups, students, and recent graduates all working together to better our local entrepreneurial community.
