Global Detroit is an effort to revitalize Southeast Michigan’s economy by pursuing strategies that strengthen Detroit’s connections to the world, and that make the region more attractive and welcoming to immigrants, internationals, and foreign trade and investment.

Global Detroit has helped connect over $4 million of philanthropic investments in over a half dozen ambitious initiatives since completing an initial Global Detroit study in 2010. These include launching innovative programs in international student retention, microenterprise training and lending, the Welcoming Michigan campaign, the Global Detroit Welcome Mat network of immigration and social services, and attracting foreign investment in companies that produce Michigan jobs.

Global Detroit is one of several efforts across the Great Lakes region that capitalizes on the Midwest’s (an American) experience of immigration—talent, industriousness, innovation, trade, and diversity—as an economic growth engine.
