Ann Arbor SPARK is Ann Arbor?s engine for economic development. We are an organization dedicated to the economic prosperity of the greater Ann Arbor region. We use our skills and knowledge to attract, develop, strengthen, and invest in driving industries to help our region thrive.
Economic development is the sustained, concerted actions that promote the standard of living and economic health. It creates the conditions for improved quality of life by expanding the capacity of individuals, firms, and communities to maximize the use of their talents and skills to support the innovation that drives economic growth.
Economic Development requires collaboration, and Ann Arbor SPARK is committed to bringing together partners, like the Michigan Economic Development Corp., Michigan Works, city and municipal partners, academic institutions, and others to support the growth of companies and the creation of jobs.
