Who We Are
For nearly 40 years, DEGC has served as Detroit’s lead nonprofit economic development entity. We are structured as a public-private partnership with a 52-member board consisting of civic leaders, corporate executives, government officials and other stakeholders.
DEGC is considered a critical citywide tool in deploying both place-based and job creation strategies. We work to support existing businesses and bring new companies and investments to the city. From identifying potential development sites and negotiating development agreements, to managing construction projects and eliminating obstacles to growth, DEGC is dedicated to being an advocate for businesses large and small. We are Detroit’s economic development experts and a one-stop shop for both emerging and expanding businesses.Detroit Economic Growth Corporation
