About This Meeting

Peter Karmanos, Jr., chairman of MadDog Technology, spoke to the Detroit Economic Club on Thursday April 14th about today’s changing culture, which he describes as the Age of Absurdity.

On the topic of entrepreneurship, when asked if he had any advice for young entrepreneurs, Karmanos said, “Plan on working hard. Don’t think that anything is going to come because you are there. You need to work 60, 70, 80 hours a week. You need to think about it every waking moment. Know what you are heading into and be willing to work.”
