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.

Michigan's Technology Profile

According to Dice.com:  Detroit has led the nation with the fastest growth in technology job offerings since February 2011 - at 101%.
According to Forbes:  Detroit boasts one of the nation's largest concentations of tech workers, nearly 50% above the national average. Additionally, in the past 2 years (2010 - 2011) the region has experienced a solid 7.7% increase in technology jobs, the 2nd highest rate of any metro area in the country.
