Finney if Detroit is going to become a tech hub, he’ll tell you to look around—Detroit already is a tech hub. “Detroit is loaded with technology,” the Michigan Economic Development Corporation CEO said. Finney, appointed by Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder, talked with us at our recent Techonomy Detroit conference about Detroit’s talent-driven infrastructure, from community and business leaders to universities, companies, and the auto industry. “It’s a question of building on all the great strengths we have right now in the auto sector and extending it into other sectors,” Finney said, calling Detroit “an ideal location for future development.”
