TechTown is an urban research and technology business park located just north of the Edsel Ford Freeway (I-94) in the New Center area of Detroit. The organization defines itself as "a community of entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, service providers and corporate partners creating an internationally recognized entrepreneurial village in the city of Detroit." TechTown is part of the Wayne State University system.
The 12-block, 43-acre (17 ha) park is located on the border of Detroit's Midtown and New Center. The Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, which churned out the first Model T, is a few blocks east of the research park.
