About this grant

This grant will support SIPI in leading the coordination and alignment of Flint’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. The goals of this grant renewal are to: 1) increase the awareness of resources available to local entrepreneurs; 2) support the growth of mentorship in the Flint entrepreneurial community; 3) reduce barriers that limit access to financing and other resources for entrepreneurs from marginalized communities; 4) utilize data tracking to measure impact of the ecosystem; and 5) increasing the impact of the ecosystem through convening subcommittees focused on specific areas of the work.
