Empowering the Entrepreneur

Michigan has been on a strong business upswing since 2010. Upon the recovery of the automotive industry, metro-Detroit areas have gained momentum in new business start-ups, restructuring, and incentives to draw businesses to live and work locally. If you have thought of starting a business, working for a start-up, or are in the position to begin a second career, we invite you to attend this breakfast panel discussion.

DID YOU KNOW...

The U.S. gov't is the largest single purchaser of goods and services in the world, buying everything from armored vehicles and cutting-edge research to paper clips and super computers. Every year, the federal gov't awards over $500 billion in contracts, and a significant share of those contracts are made specifically available for award to small businesses.
