Why Its Important to Grow Mobile in Michigan

According to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, every job created in Michigan's Mobile Technology industry creates 3.9 non-mobile-industry jobs in the state.
  
Innovation, according to Bruce Katz, VP of the Brookings Institution, has always driven economic progress. And the world today is “on the cusp of a tech revolution — self-driving vehicles, smart homes, remote health care.” And the U.S. is in danger of lagging — we’re now No. 45 on the global list of bachelor’s degrees granted in science and engineering.
