Fostering a community of business-to-business procurement, BuyDetroit is the single source for buyers, suppliers and contractors of all sizes and categories to connect, post and apply for new opportunities, and build capacity. In turn, the program creates new jobs, drives access and inclusion, and helps to grow Detroit’s economy.

The goals of BuyDetroit are to:

  • Add jobs to Detroit’s economy by growing Detroit-based suppliers
  • Grow the overall spend of Detroit-based buyers directly with Detroit-based suppliers
  • Increase the number of contracts won through the City of Detroit by Detroit-based suppliers
  • Increase the volume of Detroit-based suppliers’ products and services sold outside Detroit

How to Get Started:

Step 1: Create your portal account

A portal accounted is needed to participate in the Marketplace and view various opportunities offered by Buyer Council members.

Step 2: Sign up for the Marketplace

Detroit businesses can participate in the marketplace as a supplier and a buyer. All other businesses can only sign up as a buyer. In this step, businesses can add capability tags based on their role in the Marketplace.

Buyers: Add tags to show Detroit suppliers what products/services you seek.

Suppliers: Add tags to show buyers the products/services you provide, certifications and licenses you have, and project capacity.

Step 3: Download the mobile BuyDetroit app to stay engaged on-the-go

  • Stay connected with Michigan buyers and global suppliers
  • Search for and submit opportunities
  • Find and register for events, workshops and more
