Dear entrepreneur,

This past week, I had the opportunity to witness firsthand the resolve and resilience of an entrepreneur we’ve worked with for a long time. During this entrepreneur’s initial pursuit of funding her project, she was declined twenty-three times. Nevertheless, she persisted, and triumphantly held her grand opening last week.

I think of the countless stories that are similar. I am often amazed at the spirit and tenacity of the entrepreneurs like you within the state of Michigan. We applaud entrepreneurs’ efforts and consistent drive for excellence.

As always, if we at MWF can be of assistance or you know of a program that could benefit the entrepreneurial ecosystem, please feel free to reach out to us.

My Best, Alexis Dishman
