Detroit 2.0: A Closer Look at Detroit’s Startup Scene

By Amanda Lewan on August 7th, 2013 / Comments

This week in Detroit we’ve got the primary election, bankruptcy updates, and also a closer look at entrepreneurs in Detroit. Crain’s released their special issue on Monday called “Detroit 2.o: Living and Rebuilding in the City.”

The issues looks closely at re-invention and renovation across Detroit. It’s great to see a focus on tech startups, like Ginkgotree the Ann Arbor startup that recently moved to Detroit, and pop-up retail businesses. Detroit has a unique combination of a growing tech hub and a need for more street storefronts. Inside you’ll also find a list of the 24 new businesses that arrived to Midtown, Detroit this past year.

Check out Crain’s Detroit 2.0 issues for a closer look at Detroit’s entrepreneurs.

Are pop-ups and tech startups growing in your city?
