The E-Cities Project at U-M Dearborn is an annual research study that examines community level factors that influence entrepreneurship, economic development, and job growth.
The project, which is free and open to all local governments, provides benchmarking reports to participating communities as well as opportunities to receive valuable feedback from business leaders and entrepreneurs across the state. The project is in its seventh year.
Watch a short video about the project here. Also, see a list of previous results including communities that have previously participated.
