Member of the Month: Women-Owned Brooklyn Outdoor Creates Unique Outdoor Experiences in Detroit

Editor’s note: The Member of the Month highlights a Detroit Regional Chamber member company working to grow the regional economy through innovative leadership and programs or support of policies that benefit the business community at large.

Brooklyn Outdoor was named the Chamber’s member of the month for April 2019 because of their unique ability to drive creative experiences in outdoor advertising and their position as the only national, certified women-owned outdoor advertising agency in Detroit and in Michigan.

In 2019, Brooklyn Outdoor was designated as one of Michigan Celebrates Small Business’ 50 Companies to Watch. This designation is given to companies in the second stage of development, who have surpassed the startup stage and are in their growth phase.

With more than 500 local, statewide, and national clients, Brooklyn Outdoor was named one of the fastest growing advertising companies in the country by INC Magazine in 2018. Since opening for business in 2013, the Detroit-based company has promised innovative marketing, flawless execution, and unmatched relationships.

Some of their most prominent projects in Detroit include driving over 1 million dollars in revenue for Cobo Center through the sale of the digital spectacular video boards at Congress and Washington and assisting the Downtown Detroit Partnership with the expansion of the MOGO public bike-share system.  In addition, Brooklyn Outdoor is one of the founding sponsors of Murals in the Market. This festival is responsible for producing more than 200 art installations and murals in Detroit’s historic Eastern Market and beyond. The response and impact to these murals has been major for Detroit’s tourism industry.

Brooklyn Outdoor’s efforts in community involvement will continue to grow with the upcoming installation of sixty, brand new bus shelters across Detroit. The installation of these new bus shelters will provide brand, new revenue for the city through a pilot advertising program on the bus shelters, increase safety for the bus system, and provide infrastructure to the neighborhoods. The entrepreneurial spirit of locally-owned businesses like Brooklyn Outdoor are what make Detroit unique among other cities and keep the region running at full speed.
