Who's Coming

Nicole Mangis

I am a social entrepreneur leading the effort to launch Impact Hub Detroit and Launch Exchange – a new coworking space for social enterprise in Detroit. I am also the Assistant Director of iLabs, the Center for Innovation Research at UM-Dearborn, the public policy committee chair for the newly formed Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) Detroit chapter and an UP Global Detroit community leader and co-organizer for two Detroit Startup Weekend verticals: “regular” & social enterprise. I consider myself a cheerleader for Detroit, my region, and Michigan.

I am also proud to be an arm chair physics geek, with a budding interest in biology. And… I also enjoy likes long hikes in the “mountains” of Michigan, good company, and plenty of adventures.
