In case you missed it, business is booming in the Motor City.
“From Midtown to the Riverfront to East Side and West Side neighborhoods, Detroit is experiencing a remarkable economic renewal. This growth is due in part to significant corporate investments and public-private projects, but it’s also Detroit’s small businesses, entrepreneurial ventures and neighborhood enterprises that are driving the city’s recovery and economic progress.”
And global business leaders are taking notice.
Earlier this year, the Kresge Foundation commissioned Baltimore-based FTI Consulting to survey more than 300 senior business leaders at midsize to large, U.S.-based, global companies. Among the study’s findings:
- 84% were convinced Detroit would become great again
- 72% rate Detroit as an excellent or good investment opportunity
