|Dear entrepreneur , It takes a special person to be an entrepreneur. I have always known this, but after the past year, I believe it more than ever. |
Since the start of the pandemic and related business shutdowns/ public safety requirements, many Michigan entrepreneurs have had to summon a new kind of resilience that they didn’t know was in them. I know that many of you have laid awake at night not knowing if your businesses would survive, and yet you got up in the morning and kept going anyway. I admire your passion, persistence, and relentless hope.
Michigan Women Forward is bringing together a group of experts to have a conversation about what resilience looks like in this next chapter as businesses begin to reopen to full capacity and people return to work in-person. Join us for a virtual panel on June 23 at 8am between entrepreneurs and funders – it’s free and open to all!
As always, please reach out to us if you have questions about applying for a microloan through Michigan Women Forward. Sincerely,Alexis Dishman
