The DC3 is an economic development organization with a targeted purpose: providing support to Detroit’s creative industries in the form of resources, exposure, and advocacy in order to grow Detroit’s creative economy and recognize Detroit as a global center for design.

The DC3 is working to build density in the Creative Corridor and provide exposure for Detroit’s creative industries. To that end, we help grow Detroit’s creative economy through business acceleration services for creative firms and independent practitioners. We celebrate Detroit’s creative talent and innovation, and we advocate at a local, state, and international level for recognition of our city as a global center for design.
