Farmington Hills event provides networking Bridge

Bridget Barnes Espinosa spends much of her time working with immigrant business owners in Detroit, making connections through her cross-cultural consulting firm, Puente Cultural Integration.

On May 29, she’ll bring together some of those entrepreneurs and local vendors for BRIDGE Bilingual Business Expo & Networking Event, held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza, 37529 Grand River, in Farmington Hills.

Espinosa has extended an invitation to the community to meet vendors, including artisan and food-based businesses, and business-to-business service providers. The Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce (GFAC) will also have a presence at the event.

During a 4:30 p.m. workshop, Espinosa will share the PCI BRIDGE business model with anyone interested in launching or growing a business. The “Shaking-Hands-On” workshop includes a Tequila Cabresto sampling.

Partners for the event include the Alliance Catholic Credit Union, the Chamber, the Crowne Plaza, The SOL Coalition, and Red Global MX – Capítulo Detroit; media partners are Latino Press and Farmington Voice.

Tickets are available at or contact Espinosa, or 248-919-8440.
