Michigan needs more talent: why one tech exec chose Ann Arbor over Paris

Apr 20, 2017

Not too long ago, Upper Peninsula native Dawn Verbrigghe had a career humming along in super-cool Brooklyn.

Then, out of the blue, came two job offers. One, in Paris, which promised a rooftop apartment in the City of Light. The other offer: Ann Arbor, Michigan.

 Spoiler alert: she chose Ann Arbor.  Verbrigghe joined Stateside to explain why she thinks the city is a “nascent but burgeoning technology community.”
