Supporting Detroit business owners, entrepreneurs, and residents.
There is no question that business investments are coming into Detroit, but how are these investments affecting the city’s residents?
Matt understands that the economic successes of Detroit has not benefited everyone in the city equally. One of his key focuses in building Detroit’s economy is looking at the development models that have worked in Downtown and Midtown, and learning from their successes and shortcomings to develop District 4’s local-owned, neighborhood businesses.
Matt’s plan for building economic growth in Detroit includes collaborating with business leaders and local officials to spur growth across the city’s neighborhoods – without displacing or disrupting the lives of the neighborhoods’ residents. Specifically, Matt wants use the office to organize and effort to invest in local and black owned business start ups and develop a way to keep people who have been foreclosed on in their homes.
