What Is Imagine Detroit?


Here at Imagine Detroit™, we are dedicated to capturing the story of small, independent businesses and sharing those stories to show the loyalty and belief people have in the city of Detroit.
Who are we?

Metro-Detroiters with a passion for the city who are launching a new campaign called Imagine
Detroit™, which focuses on why business, both new and old, want to start, expand, or stay in Detroit.

What do we do?

Provide a platform for independent Detroit businesses to tell their stories and help them grow
within the rising city of Detroit.

What’s our goal?

Show people in and outside of the city the swell of business that exists and most importantly,
all of the potential Detroit has to offer.

The Process


We find the businesses through submissions, referrals, and our own research and on-site searching.


We come visit your business, conduct our short interview (5 minutes or so) about why you want to be in Detroit, and then snap a few pictures.


We compile what we’ve got, edit what we need to, and publish our work here on the website and our social media pages.
