Known as Motown and America’s Automotive Capital, a fervent and determined Detroit has renamed itself America’s Comeback City. Despite the area’s financial crash and supposed talent flight, financial powerhouses smell opportunity. Entrepreneurs are acquiring vast swaths of commercial real estate and investing in a high-tech edge. Sperlings’ Best Large City Cost of Living ranks it third, but the big surprise may be that the area is second only to Silicon Valley in its concentration of engineers. Population figures may be resting around 700,000, but it’s one of Forbes’ picks for “Opportunity Cities: Places It Might Be Easier To Make Your Mark” and its first choice as most affordable.
From a professional perspective, Detroit is one of the five financial hubs in the country and ranks fourth in technology sector for internships. The area retained its cutting-edge research and development assets related to the automotive industry and others as well. Marketing and financial heavyweights like Campbell-Ewald, BBDO and McCann-Erickson as well as Ally Financial, Quicken Loans and a full host of prestigious banks add economic resources.
