Detroit Means Business

Thank you,
Detroit Small Business Owners!

We can't even begin to describe how well the inaugural Detroit Means Business Summit went. We were so eager to gather with you in person again to provide small business owners with tangible takeaways for business growth. Hundreds of business owners joined us at the Roostertail for 1-on-1 consultations from business experts, industry roundtables, and more. We received a warm welcome and kickoff to the National Small Business Week from Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist and DEGC President & CEO Kevin Johnson. We also provided several business owners with grants thanks to partnerships with Black Leaders Detroit and Bank of America.
