A group of Detroit businesses is trying to lure thousands of people recently laid off from Yahoo Inc. (YHOO) to take advantage of open jobs in the city's "entrepreneurial renaissance." Among the firms involved in the effort are Quicken Loans, Detroit Venture Partners, Rockbridge Growth Equity and Fathead.com. They said they are "interested in hiring hundreds of technology and marketing professionals formerly employed by Yahoo" and are ready to immediately begin interviews. "Detroit is quickly emerging as one of the nation's best kept secrets when it comes to technology, Internet and mobile-related jobs," said Josh Linkner, chief executive of Detroit Venture Partners, in making the pitch.
