U.P. companies are leading the tech business boom in Michigan

Small tech companies are flourishing in the fertile ground of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Powered by U.P. universities and SmartZones, as well as its native entrepreneurial spirit and attractive quality of life, companies are bringing innovations to market to create alternative energy solutions, make college admissions more fair, propel satellites into space, and wire hotels around the world.

Crain’s Michigan Business featured companies from across the Upper Peninsula including SwimSmart Technology LLC, SightLine Inc., Orbion Space Technologies, Deployed Technologies LLC, and ZiTechnologies Inc. From entrepreneurial ventures to AI to satellites and more, read about the up-north up-and-comers in Crain’s article, Inside the Upper Peninsula’s surprising tech business boom.

As a part of our commitment to the Upper Peninsula, we collaborate with partners to share some of the most compelling stories about business and job growth across the region. Our goal through these stories is to get at the heart of what makes the U.P. unique — and to ensure these stories travel beyond our peninsula and broadly illustrate why the UP is the place to live and work.
