#SOTC313: Economic Development and Motor City Match

Tune in to Mayor Duggan's speech tonight at 7 p.m. on detroitmi.gov

Tonight, Mayor Mike Duggan will give citizens of Detroit updates on the work his administration has done during the 2020 State of the City address. One of the main areas of focus will be the growth in economic development in 2019. A huge driving force of the growth is the mayor's Motor City Match program. Here are some of the program highlights from last year:

29 – the number of MCM businesses that opened in 2019

98 — the number of Motor City Match winners fully operating brick and mortar businesses across Detroit

246 – the number of home-based businesses MCM has activated, assisted, or expanded

138 – the number of MCM businesses doing pop-ups or operating in temporary commercial spaces – coworking, shared space, and short-term production or kitchen space

57 — the number of Motor City Match winners currently under construction

34 — the number of Motor City Match winners coming soon

81 percent — the number of Motor City Match businesses owned by people of color

71 percent — the number of Motor City Match businesses owned by women
