Economic development leaders from both Windsor and Detroit joined together Wednesday to announce a new partnership to better promote the region as the perfect two-nation destination for existing and startup mobility companies to invest, locate and conduct business.
The signed partnership agreement, which includes the Windsor-Essex Economic Development Corporation and Detroit Mobility Lab, was unveiled during an online panel session which highlighted mobility companies already in the area, available binational grants and tax benefits, plus the strong pipeline to technology talent emerging from nearby universities on both sides of the border.

Detroit Mobility Lab is a collaborative across the river that includes mobility entrepreneurs, auto executives, industry suppliers, academic leaders and service providers.
“The purpose of today is to talk about power of the region,” said Detroit Mobility Lab President Chris Thomas, kicking off the online session. “The Detroit-Windsor region has the potential I believe to become the most important in the future of mobility.”
