The new site will also empower citizens everywhere to champion young entrepreneurs via CitySpotters, I Am Young Detroit's new mobile and web platform that will allow users to earn points by ‘spotting’ a promising new business idea or movement led by a young doer, by playing a ‘supporting role’ as mentor, resource provider, or educator, or by answering user-submitted questions. Points are then used to redeem local gifts and promotions that further support the young entrepreneurs featured on the website. Additional methods of earning points will be added as the platform and user-base grows. Eventually IAYD will use data from CitySpotters to digitally map people, businesses, neighborhoods, and movements in ways that inspire, inform, and evolve in real-time.
