About Us

Welcome to Prosper, the electronic snapshot of what’s happening in economic development and community affairs in Oakland County.

Twice a month, Prosper gives you the latest news and information about businesses, newsmakers, and community developments. We introduce you to the diversity of human capital so vital to Oakland County’s emergence as a global destination for international business development and those who make your downtowns so attractive.

You’ll learn about arts and cultural events in your communities, our Tech248 technology initiative, Medical Main Street, how and when to dispose of household hazardous waste, business classes for entrepreneurs, or whether you may qualify for help making a down payment on a home.

We hope you read Prosper as part of your routine and share it with others. If you have comments, story ideas, or if there is something you would like to see in future editions, contact Editor Kristie Everett Zamora at zamorak@oakgov.com.

We’re proud of Prosper – another way that shows Oakland County is a great place to live, work, and play.
