Q: Is this workshop just for women?
A: No. We've specifically designed this course for those traditionally underfunded as business owners and entrepreneurs, which includes women, people of color, and those in the LGBTQ+ community. However, all are welcome to apply.
Q: Can I sign up for just one section of the workshop?
A: No. When you sign up, you're agreeing to attend the full length of the workshop to ensure you have everything you need to apply for funding opportunities like Michigan Tribe micro-grants, traditional and non-traditional loans, and pitch competitions.
Q: What kinds of businesses are a good fit for this workshop?
A: The workshop is designed for a variety of businesses, including brick and mortar, franchises, service-based businesses, multi-passionate entrepreneurs, and more. It's best for those ready to start or grow their business, but they need funding to do so.
Q: Do I have to attend live?
A: Yes. It's best that you attend live and no virtual option or recording is offered, since there will be an interactive component to ensure your business moves forward and is ready for funding opportunities.
