About the Detroit Business Opportunity Program

The Detroit Business Opportunity Program (DBOP) is an important component of the economic revitalization of Detroit and allows residents, developers, and businesses the opportunity to identify businesses based in the City of Detroit. We offer certifications for Detroit Based, Detroit Headquartered, Small, Micro Business, Resident, Minority and Women Owned Businesses. We also offer Start-Up Certifications.
