Michigan is helping mobility-related startups launch their businesses and connect with potential carmaker and supplier customers through an innovative new program called the PlanetM Landing Zone. The initiative provides participating companies with inexpensive office space, assistance in organizing and structuring their operations, and tools to help them find customers.

Opened in downtown Detroit in October 2017, the Landing Zone is a partnership involving the Michigan Economic Development Corp., Detroit Regional Chamber and WeWork Detroit. The Landing Zone is heavily supported by MEDC’s PlanetM, which showcases and further develops Michigan’s expertise and unequaled assets in advanced mobility technologies, services and products.

PlanetM Director Seun Phillips explains What the Landing Zone does and how companies can participate.
