Members of the SPARK staff were honored to join hundreds of other tech community professionals attending Intermitten 2018.

The event — now in its third year — branched out from its Ann Arbor roots and welcomed attendees to the stunning Guardian Building in downtown Detroit.
Intermitten excels at rising above the rhetoric and connecting attendees with presenters who provide first-hand examples of real action. The all-women lineup came from across the U.S. and Metro Detroit.
