Now more than ever is the time to support your local businesses. As the impact of the economic crisis caused by COVID-19 continues to impact Detroit, our small business owners and their employees are working hard to adapt and rethink so they can provide safe and stress-free experiences while keeping you fed and resourced. Detroit has so many exciting businesses that are offering products and services we need (haircuts included), and they are relying on all of us to ensure the survival of their businesses and jobs.
Though we encourage support of all local businesses, here is a list of some of the up-and-running businesses we have supported through our small business lending and venture investment tools.
