May 05: Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC)

For the Pure Michigan Business Connect Opportunities, your business has to be in Michigan. 

In partnership with Connect313 and College for Creative Studies, Design Core’s City of Design Challenge invites participants to develop community tech hubs to improve Detroit neighborhoods’ access and opportunity.

The digital divide prevents many Detroiters from participating in an increasingly digital world, and the situation has only gotten worse as COVID-19 has forced schools, libraries, and many other city services online. 

This challenge invites teams to develop concepts to deliver public services in a more flexible, innovative, and resident-centered way. Successful concepts will improve the residents’ experiences and offer greater access to public services in community spaces.

Application Open: April 1 – May 16
