MICHIGAN CHRONICLE: DEGC, Bank of America working together to support Detroit’s small businesses
Small business owners and the goods and services they provide for Detroiters and visitors to the city are the heart of Detroit. And the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation has actively supported the city’s entrepreneurs by partnering with various community partners and businesses to sustainably cultivate Detroit’s small businesses ecosystem.
“At the DEGC, we understand that consistent efforts to help entrepreneurs achieve success in the city are just as important as our efforts to bring in high-dollar investments to Detroit,” said Kevin Johnson, DEGC CEO and president. “We recognize that the city’s small business owners need all the support we can give, and we work with our partners every day to help make sure that happens.” For example, the DEGC’s long-term partnership with Bank of America has provided more than $1.3 million in grants over the past 15 years to support the DEGC’s efforts in elevating Detroit’s small businesses.
