Statement to Business Owners

March 19, 2020 @1:00p.m.

Concerns about exposure to the COVID-19 virus will undoubtedly dramatically reduce in-person customer traffic to your business. As owners and managers of public spaces, small business owners must be leaders in their community at this time. Your response to COVID-19 will require agile leadership, consideration for the mental and physical health of your staff and the public, and regular communication with your customers. We are here to support you with resources and guidance. Please download and read our resource guide, and check back often for updates to the guide as the situation evolves.

Schedule an Open Office Hour with a TechTown team member or an Ask An Expert appointment with our Professional Service Network to help develop and adjust your plan for shifting market demand. TechTown clients and alumni should contact their designated TechTown staff member for assistance.

Update to TechTown clients, members, tenants, staff and visitors

March 15, 2020

After following the evolution of the broader response to COVID-19 over the past two days, TechTown Detroit is making some important adjustments to our plan. At this time, we do not have a confirmed case in our building, but we are implementing more cautious measures in an effort to ensure safety.

Our people have been the priority from the start of this — our clients, our members and tenants, our staff and visitors — and it’s clear that the safest approach at this time is to further minimize the risk of exposure in every way possible and to continue to flatten the curve.

As a result, TechTown doors will be locked, and key card access will be turned off for all staff, members and tenants until further notice. Members and tenants will have building access from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, March 16 in case they need to pick up any belongings. Access will be by keycard only, and a community ambassador will be at the desk from 9 a.m. to noon to provide assistance.

We appreciate your understanding, and we will make updates to this page as the situation evolves.
