What does it take to be a great entrepreneurial city for millennials? A low-cost of living, opportunity, an amazing food and culture scene, good people and a young spirit. Right now, Detroit is topping that list.
Detroit has seen it’s fair share of struggles over the last few years. High unemployment, loads of crime and a housing market that has fallen apart top the charts for Detroit. In the last few years you could score a house in Detroit for under $50,000. That’s a steal, trust me.
On today’s podcast I chat with travel journalist, Jeff Game, about his recent trip to Detroit. Research can only tell me so much about Detroit, I wanted you all to hear what was actually happening there for someone who just visited.
Most of the cool businesses and restaurants that are emerging have been started by millennials. They have decided to take things in their own hands and create the type of businesses that they can be proud of, and ones that give back to their community.
A few of our favorites right now are:
– Ponyride (I am in love with this concept)
– Detroit Soup (I want to move to Detroit just for Detroit Soup)
If you are an entrepreneur and you are looking for a new home, think about Detroit. Yes, it gets cold there, but perhaps all the opportunity can keep you warm and cozy on those cold nights.
