Detroit Ventures Partners, a venture capital firm that invests in seed and early-stage technology companies, helped recruit Uber to downtown Detroit and brokered the company's lease in Rock Ventures' M@dison Building. The decision to expand their business to downtown Detroit was made just hours after Uber executives saw the opportunity emerging in the nation's fastest-growing urban core."It is exciting that an innovative technology platform like Uber is coming downtown to join a growing, young and energetic environment – and that they made the decision so quickly and without hesitation," said Detroit Ventures Partners' Managing Partner Josh Linkner. "The M@dison will provide them with an open, collaborative space where they will be able to continue to create a thriving, growing tech business."
