Detroit continues to solidify itself as a Midwestern Tech Hub, boasting one of the top growing tech ecosystems around the country with a thriving startup scene and outposts for major technology companies like Microsoft, Google, Twitter and Amazon. A combination of university talent pipelines, a growing and collaborative startup ecosystem, low cost of living and accelerating VC funding has made Detroit an increasingly attractive location to build and grow a tech business.

Autobooks partners directly with banks and credit unions, as well as banking technology providers, to integrate payments and receivables tools for small businesses directly into existing digital banking channels. Autobooks is one of the fastest-growing fintech companies in the area, having raised nearly $50M to date and secured several major partnerships in the past year.

They’ve established themselves as experienced leaders in the Detroit tech startup scene, and we’re excited to watch their next phase of growth.”
