Start of hot security Duo Security opens office in downtown Detroit
Duo Security is opening a new office in downtown Detroit, expanding from its headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The company will immediately move 30 team members to a shared space at Bamboo Detroit, in the Madison building, and by the end of the year, and plans to move to a 9,000-square-foot space to accommodate additional employees.
This is a great victory for Detroit.
Duo Security is one of the most popular security startups in space and arguably one of the largest in the state of Michigan. The company raised a D series of $ 70 million at the end of October 2017, placing its valuation north of one billion. Duo employs 350 people in Ann Arbor, Michigan and another 250 in other offices around the world. Through it all, Duo has stayed true to Ann Arbor, but the talent and excitement in Detroit is impossible to ignore.
"Metro Detroit has more engineers per capita than any other region in the US Next to Silicon Valley," CEO and co-founder Dug Song told TechCrunch. "And while our university town of Ann Arbor is a cornerstone of innovation in the region, the urban area of Detroit is almost 4 million strong people." Jon Oberheide and I have been eager for Duo to help play a role in the growing momentum of the city and we support the ongoing efforts to reinforce the technological profile of the region. "
Dug tells me that the company chose Bamboo to house the first Duo employees as a move back to the company's roots. Duo was founded in a coworking space and the company is ready to help build the platform for the city.
