Detroit Nation

A Community of Detroit Ex-pats and Detroiters


Mission: We are dedicated to supporting the Detroit region by directing the money, skills and energy of native Detroiters now living elsewhere to people and organizations engaged in economic development, cultural innovation and job creation in Southeastern Michigan.

Our Impact: We create ways for Detroiters around the nation to stay connected to the city and to work together with innovative leaders emerging in Detroit. We accomplish our goals by:

  • Creating volunteer opportunities that allow our members to use their professional skills to support Detroit-based startups and non-profits
  • Hosting thought-provoking gatherings in the cities where our members live that highlight the social, artistic and business innovations coming out of Detroit
  • Bringing members to the D to dialogue with local leaders and experience the energy transforming the city
