DETROIT, MI – FEBRUARY 22, 2016 – On April 13th, NewCo returns to the Motor City for the fourth year running with newly launched NewCo Tours featuring both women-led organizations and companies “Made in Detroit.”

Now that Detroit has been named the first U.S. City of Design by UNESCO, there is even more reason to celebrate,” said NewCo founder John Battelle. “NewCo’s mission is to identify and celebrate new kinds of companies – big and small – creating positive change in how they work, what they create in the world, and who they are as citizens of their community. That is exactly the type of hopeful energy fueling Detroit.”
