Michigan is doing a lot for entrepreneurs, especially in Detroit. Dan Gilbert of Quicken is going above and beyond to join the effort. With the likes of DVP, and Bizdom, Detroit is quickly becoming a tech industry.

Michigan is great because you have Detroit and Chicago in close proximity. Detroit was once a great city, the state has an extraordinary history. Because of the depression in Detroit it has caused property to go down to pennies on the dollar. We now have Chicago as tech area and Detroit is heading in that directon. Michigan is great for agriculture because of all the tillable land and for tourism because its a pretty great place to do outdoorsy things like hiking, snow mobiling, water sports, etc. It has all 4 seasons so there is a lot to see and do. Michigan's Governor is a venture capitalist and former tech CEO.
