DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Metro Detroit’s technology economy is among the tops in the nation, according to Automation Alley’s Technology Industry Report.
The report, presented Thursday at Automation Alley’s Technology Industry Outlook at the Colony Club in Detroit, was compiled by the Anderson Economic Group of East Lansing. It bench marked the metro Detroit region against 14 other high-tech hubs across the nation.
“You have a technology industry in metro Detroit that is the equal to all of Silicon Valley,” said Patrick Anderson, who found Metro Detroit comparable in terms of number of jobs, employers and occupations. “Right now you have the technology weight of Silicon Valley right around you, and it has been building for the last 10 years.”
Detroit was measured against other regions across the country, including San Jose, Calif.; Seattle; Austin, Texas; Chicago; and Boston for job creation, business creation, innovation and education.
