You live in Ann Arbor or maybe you just work here. From the chatter on the street or in the restaurants, you know thousands of people here work in technology. Walking from Main St. to State St., it’s hard to not notice a tech t-shirt, banter about code, signs on offices with made up words. Whether they’re startups or billion dollar businesses with offices here, tech is all over Ann Arbor today and they’re all hiring. There is so much happening, where can we all find out about what’s going on where?
This is why Cronicle Press aims to write a story about every technology business in Ann Arbor in 2019. Whether they’re a startup, big business, not for profit, meetup, or open source project; in software, medicine, transportation, energy, food; they’re on our list. We want to be your resource to find out what is happening in Ann Arbor, what opportunities there are, what achievements have been made, and about company culture.
Welcome to Cronicle Press, a tech news blog for the growing Ann Arbor-Detroit tech scene. Ann Arbor is our home, but it’s just our home base and a starting place to highlight the tremendous growth going on in Midwest tech towns. Please check back for the latest tech news and networking from the Great Lakes, including industry roundtable discussions, event writeups, networking space, and profiles of local companies in software, security, life sciences, biomedical tech, mobility, sustainable energy, and even technology in the arts. In 2020, we will be expanding through the Michigan and Great Lakes region, working from regional tech towns like Detroit and Grand Rapids and Lansing to Houghton, Muskegon, and Traverse City (did you know they each have their own startup incubators now?), and adding other Great Lakes regional Midwest tech towns from there.
Cronicle Press was founded by Archie Cowan, the chief technical architect for JSTOR/Ithaka, and green tech magazine editor and journalist Laura K. Cowan, who is also an editor and columnist for Ann Arbor’s Crazy Wisdom Community Journal, and a contributor for The Ann Arbor Observer.
If you would like your tech company featured on Cronicle Press, please contact the editor at laura [at] cronicle.press. We are accepting guest posts, interviewing tech professionals at all levels of the industry, and looking to foster industry discussions on the current tech scene — especially in behind-the-scenes looks at what tech professionals are thinking about and wanting to discuss in their own area of expertise and across disciplines and industries. Our core focus is software, security, and life sciences, but we also incorporate mobility tech and sustainable energy as they connect with the tech industry.
