Covalent in the Community

by Bridget Travers

How did you all spend your January? Here at Covalent, when we weren’t shoveling snow, cheering on the Lions (I know!), or working hard, we were out in our community to inspire—and be inspired by—our talented and committed neighbors.    

Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce January Luncheon

We were excited to join the Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce for their January luncheon and to share our Gen AI experience with members. Getting to know our fellow business owners and understanding their challenges and successes firsthand was invaluable. Our conversations have sparked potential collaborations, partnerships, and new ideas for implementing generative AI.  Ultimately, our experience reaffirmed our commitment to being a relevant and valuable resource within the local community, one that can help guide others through the quickly changing technological landscape.  

Romeo High School Academies Pitch Event

Can you think of a better way to spend a Thursday morning than coaching Metro Detroit’s next generation of entrepreneurs? We can’t!  When Velocity in Sterling Heights played host to Romeo High School Academies Pitch Competition, Covalent CTO Ryan LaPensee was there as one of the table coaches, helping his team of students collaborate on a new business idea and walk through all the steps to convince a panel of judges to invest (and let’s just say we may have a new online product you want to invest in!).  It was so exciting to see the next generation in action!  Thanks to Velocity and Romeo High School for allowing us to participate.
