The Michigan Economic Development Corp. also recognized Michigan small businesses and entrepreneurs that excelled the past year in their innovation, revenue growth and ability to employ Michigan workers (Michigan Monitor May 3). “We’ve had to create a whole spectrum of help for entrepreneurs in order to be successful,” Granholm told a group of several hundred at the Lansing Center. “We have 12 Small Business Technology and Development Centers (SBTDCs) around the state ... and we also linked up with credit unions all across Michigan. “This year at the State of the State [address], I announced that credit unions chipped in $43 million to be able to work with the SBTDCs to take 1,000 entrepreneurs from start to finish,” she added. “We’re very excited about being able to support entrepreneurs, startups and those who need technical assistance.” Michigan credit unions were represented at the event by Michigan Credit Union League staff. Fifty small businesses were honored as “Companies to Watch,” while several individual business owners received awards.
