Grand Circus and Google Featured in the Unveiling of The M@dison Block

The M@dison Block was announced Monday night by some of Detroit’s business leaders. The block consists of 26 start-up companies in a state-of-the-art hub that promotes innovation and creativity which will hopefully provide a spark to the Detroit economy. It represents a hope that many have for the city of Detroit. That hope stems from the attempt to diversify the businesses in the area, moving away from the traditional auto industry that has defined the Motor City for decades.
