We cultivate sustainable, resilient communities in Detroit by fostering tech-enabled urban development and climate change solutions.
We facilitate cross-sector partnerships that identify and implement best-in-class solutions to challenges facing Detroit.
Detroit Urban Solutions (DUS) is a diverse and growing coalition of Detroit-based organizations that are dedicated to urban tech and innovation. We create connections that inspire new ways of working together to improve the city we share.
Driven by citizen science and stakeholder needs, regional partners work collaboratively in the areas of healthcare, water tech, mobility, energy and more.
DUS was launched by TechTown Detroit, CIV:LAB, Wayne State University and Next Energy with a mission to amplify the Detroit urban tech and smart city ecosystem.
