The Michigan SBDC is committed to fostering and sustaining a culture of inclusion.
We work on this every day through equitable outreach and service to Michigan’s diverse small business community. This page contains resources specifically for underserved populations throughout the state which include but are not limited to; people of color, women, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and rural communities.
What the SBDC did for me was help me focus on what my business actually is, where my profit margins will be, and where my audience is.Ty Gray-El, TyGrayEl LLC
