Shinola, Putting Detroit Back on the Map

Wise entrepreneurs are able envision opportunities in places where others only see obstacles, and Detroit based Shinola is just such a company. Currently producing leather goods, watches, and bicycles, they are on a mission to turn out world class product and help rebuild a once great metropolis in the process. A city that was the envy of world, Detroit fell into a desperate financial spiral beginning in the 1960’s, leaving the city and it’s population in economic ruin. But in recent years, businesses like these and a motivated population are making a comeback. We’re going to be rooting for the continued growth of Shinola and the resurgence of the Motor City.
