A Detroit School for Digital Technology (DSDT) was born out of founder Jamie Kothe's desire to use the Detroit tech boom to bring gainful employment to locals. After a lot meaningful work and dedication, DSDT is now impacting the local community. Kothe projects that 94 percent of DSDT graduates will find jobs or opportunities for further study in Detroit within six months of graduation.
How SCORE helped: Kothe says, "Having a SCORE mentor can help you to recognize holes or gaps in your business most small business owners have blinders too and not enough time to analyze."
