D2D Program Goals

D2D is a local procurement program dedicated to strengthening business-to-business connections throughout the city. The goal of the program is to increase the local spend of larger corporations with Detroit-based businesses and increase the capacity of local vendors. Although the program is in transition, we are periodically hosting matchmaking events and PRO Sessions, and continuing to engage the 17 organizations that make up the D2D Buyers’ Council. We encourage you to scroll down and read more about our partners and additional resources that may help with your local procurement needs. For any questions about the program, please contact Martha Potere (mpotere@degc.org).
