Detroit Regional Partnership Drops Record-Breaking Economic Numbers

In light of the recent Pancakes & Politics panel on making Detroit a go-to destination for start-ups and high-growth businesses, the Detroit Regional Partnership (DRP) just dropped its latest report.

Some of the numbers from its 2022 Annual Report state that the organization sealed 33 deals, responsible for creating and supporting 17,278 jobs, had a hand with increasing payroll in the state by $954.7 million, and $4.6 billion in investment and construction output.

The report spotlighted Majorel, a tech business that provides call-center customer service. In the beginning of June 2022, the business already hired 150 employees when it decided to locate to Detroit. By the month’s end, they not only hired 500 workers but also announced that 211 West Fort Street would be the location of its new brick-and-mortar office in downtown Detroit.

The successful hiring process was led by Detroit at Work, with supporting partners City of Detroit, Detroit Economic Growth Corporation and Wayne County, all of whom helped promote job opportunities and host job fairs at the Renaissance Center.
