TECHWEEK - SAM'S STORY | THE COMEBACK CITY

Detroit is reinventing itself, and we want in on it.

-Sam Kennedy
Executive Director, Techweek

Detroit is growing, and its thriving technology sector is leading the way. Nestled among the newly revitalized downtown and other cities involved in metro Detroit’s comeback, dozens of new tech-oriented and start-up businesses have taken root and found a successful home here in The D. Around every corner, Detroit is keeping itself on the cutting edge of today’s technology, which is the reason why Techweek, one of the country’s leading technology conventions, came to Detroit in 2014. And it was so successful, Techweek is coming back to do it all over again this year. Discover Detroit, America’s great comeback city.
