MEET THE SOLUTIONARIES
It is our sincere hope that the I Dream Detroit report and the project bearing the same name will greatly inform Detroit’s ongoing economic development planning- introducing to some, and reintroducing to others, new partners that economic development leaders should be working with more closely.
The report is organized around four types of solutionaries—anchors, architects, advocates and entrepreneurs. Their deeply personal narratives of trials and triumphs all offer insights that reflect the perceptions and themes that emerged in the broader conversation with women through the focus groups and citywide survey. The report concludes with a series of recommendations to move the ideas within these pages to action.
