Let’s Rewrite the Story of Detroit

If you’re a maker or the creator of a new service and you’re looking for greater reach; if you’re selling to retailers or online and want to expand; or if you’ve got an underutilized production facility in the Detroit area, we want to hear from you. We’re looking to meet with local Detroit companies to help them grow their business and reach more Americans through our Born and Built in Detroit initiative.

Who We Are

We’re a group of local area business leaders and investors looking to help enable the next Detroit success story by building brands and creating connections to some of the country’s biggest retailers.
