What happens when MICHIGAN meets comeback?

  • A pro-business environment. World-class talent. Logistical superiority. A Pure Michigan lifestyle. These are just a few of the elements contributing to Michigan going through a once-in-a-generation economic transformation.

    A Pro-Business Environment

    Home to the second fastest economic growth rate in the country since 2009, Michigan has reduced its state business tax by over 80% and has one of the lowest corporate income tax rates in the country at 6%. As the most recent right-to-work state, Michigan is also a top 5 state in new or expanded corporate facilities.

    World-Class Talent 

    With one of the world’s largest concentrations of industrial R&D, Michigan’s world-class research university system produces a deep and growing pool of highly skilled talent – including the fourth largest high-tech workforce in the country.

    Logistical Superiority 

    Being able to create only matters if you can deliver on your promise. With 11 major cargo airports, numerous deep-water ports and 65% of the U.S. population within a one-day drive of its borders, Michigan is ideally positioned to help start and grow business.

    Pure Michigan Lifestyle

    Of course, all of this is only part of the equation to a fulfilling life. With 11,000 inland lakes and over 19 million acres of forest, Michigan also offers award-winning destinations like Sleeping Bear Dunes and Mackinac Island.

    Combined with leading the country in the number of ski areas and golf courses, along with world-class fishing, it’s clear that the best opportunity to finding the perfect balance between work and play is Pure Michigan.
