TechTown is Detroit’s entrepreneurship hub. We’re a different kind of incubator and accelerator, with a full suite of programs for both tech and neighborhood small businesses. We work with businesses at all stages, helping startup, emerging and established companies develop, launch and grow.
Detroit City of Design believes in the power of inclusive design to shape a more equitable, sustainable and passionate society. It is that spirit of inclusivity that best describes the alignment between us. We honor the role design plays in all that we do at TechTown and recognize it plays a critical role in our vision for a vibrant region with lasting prosperity for all. Every decision we make – whether it be programs, coworking space or partnerships – we work to make sure those opportunities are designed to be accessible to all.
TechTown’s place-based entrepreneurship programming – Retail Services and SWOT City- has supported several initiatives of the UNESCO City of Design Initiative, including the Design Guide and the State of Urban Manufacturing Study. We look forward to supporting the Drinks x Design event in May in Grandmont Rosedale – one of our target neighborhoods.
