Ypsilanti businesses are celebrating the return of Ypsi 9th Hour! Sponsored and co-created by Ann Arbor SPARK East Innovation Center and The Back Office Studio (BOS), this after-work networking scene is for anyone looking to socialize with like-minded entrepreneurs, business professionals, and independent contractors in a casual, relaxed atmosphere with complimentary refreshments.

As new companies establish here, Ypsilanti’s business population continues to thrive. While the professional working environment undoubtedly breeds collaboration, SPARK East and BOS noticed a vacancy in activity dedicated to networking and camaraderie. With this growing need to connect, Ypsi 9th Hour was created to elevate the community aspect of business professionals by offering a place for them to meet up at the ninth hour — after an eight-hour workday. The atmosphere is friendly and encourages growing new connections and building upon established ones, too.
