The Welcome Mat is Out
Troy is a prime location for new and expanding businesses like yours. Home to 7 million square feet of retail space, 21 million square feet of office and engineering space and 16 million square feet of manufacturing space, Troy’s business environment is progressive and diverse with a solid mix of major corporations and small local businesses. Troy is home to Automation Alley, Michigan’s largest technology business association driving growth in Southeast Michigan’s economy, and at the center of global technology and manufacturing. Troy is also a major contributor for Michigan’s ranking as one of the largest high-tech workforce employers in the country. Nerd Wallet named Troy the 4th best small city in the U.S. to start a business.

Those interested in relocating or expanding their business in Troy can expect to receive a warm welcome from the City’s Economic Development Department, which provides helpful resources.


Michigan's Premier Address for Business, Retail and Commerce

As your business continues to strategize, look to the City, its programs and resource partners to help expand your business to new heights. The City of Troy, in collaboration with our public and private sector partners, is focused on helping your business grow. Through an economic gardening approach, Troy's Economic Development staff assists our local companies by identifying specific business needs and providing the information, infrastructure, and connectivity necessary to address those needs.

Troy’s economic gardening initiative is called Troy Michigan Business Connect. The program provides assistance to all growing Troy companies, particularly those considered “second stage” (generally between 6 and 99 employees and $750,000 to $50M in annual revenue). Through our partnership network, a wide range of assistance is provided to help Troy companies grow. Assistance is available in areas such as business development, market analysis, logistics, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), finance, human resources development, talent recruitment, supported employment, site selection, utility issues, building permits and inspections, planning, zoning and other areas.

On this page you will find links to a Business Interest Form, which you may use to request assistance for your specific business needs, along with a list of Partners that provide business resources. In addition, check out the business connection tool available through Insyght and connect your business to interns through the Intern in Michigan program.

By leveraging Troy's unique community assets, partnerships and available tools to promote business growth, the City is creating an environment for investment.
