DETROIT (WXYZ) - A new Silicon Valley tech company is making its new home in downtown Detroit.
The company is Stik.com, a Website that helps small businesses grow through customer referrals.
Nathan Labenz and his business partner Jay Gierak launched the company in San Francisco, but decided to come to Detroit, because they both grew up here-- and it’s not San Francisco.
“The reason that we were looking outside of San Francisco, which is where we are now, is that we just feel like over the last couple of years the pace of startup change and the sort of hiring environment there has become so frenzied,” said Labenz.
Stik.com is bringing six employees with them from San Francisco and they’re looking for at least six more in Detroit.
