The Entrepreneur’s Map of DetroitBy Amanda Lewan on July 30th, 2013 /
Looking for resources to launch a business in Detroit? Look no further. Detroit BizGrid is the newly created map to the city’s business resources.
Created by The Detroit Business Support Network, the BizGrid list all of the city’s prominent incubator programs, along with additional resources including real estate support, business plan support, seed funding and more. There are over 54 organizations listed. The Detroit Business Support Network is made up of over 40 organizations across the city of Detroit, including the New Economy Initiative, TechTown Detroit, and Bizdom.
“Entrepreneurs need to know there is a growing network of support for them, and have ways to access that network,” said David Egner, executive director, New Economy Initiative. “When you see the BizGrid, you begin to recognize not only the support that is available, but that this is a resource users can come back to over and over as their business grows.”
BizGrid is currently available for download at DetroitBizGrid.com, and will be updated as new resources become available to the city.
Despite all of the bankruptcy noise in Detroit, the city moves fast. In addition to the map, there are a few newly launched co-working spaces and additional organizations helping Detroit businesses gain access to startup resources. Check out the following, too:
