Measuring Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Detroit
The Urban Innovation Exchange is an initiative to showcase and advance Detroit’s growing social innovation movement. Data Driven Detroit serves as the data partner for UIX. D3 has created a survey to better understand innovators’ backgrounds, their projects, their support network, their perception of Detroit, and what they require to be successful. UIX has profiled projects including Excellent Schools Detroit, Summer in the City, Greening of Detroit, Brightmoor Alliance, Thrive Detroit, Detroit SOUP, Recycle Here, Greening of Detroit, and Declare Detroit. Led by Issue Media Group with Data Driven Detroit, The Civic Commons and a coalition of media and community partners, UIX is made possible thanks to funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
