Metro Detroit Has “Become a Leader Among the Nation’s Technology Economies”

March 28, 2014

The automotive capital of the world has “quietly become a leader among the nation’s technology economies,” says an Automation Alley’s 2014 Technology Industry Report released today.

According to media reports, the study shows Metro Detroit tech industry employment is up 15 percent (approximately 30,000 jobs) compared to last year, making it the largest tech hub in the Midwest. The growth rate significantly eclipses more traditional technology regions like Silicon Valley, which lost 4 percent (approximately 10,000 jobs) of its employment base.
