Programs for Small Businesses 

The Eastern UP (located within Region 1) received grant funding, which will be administered through the Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation, from the Michigan Strategic Fund to provide economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs and small businesses with the support they need to keep growing and expanding in their local communities. 

Resources available from the hubs will include one-on-one coaching, cohort-based learning and accelerators, mentor matchmaking, pitch competitions, networking events, access to capital, partner referrals, and statewide resource navigation. 

Look for more information as the programming and funding are released in 2024. 

We will have our first bi-annual series on Upper Peninsula business success stories, featuring Bob Jacquart. Watch for more information!
