About this grant

This grant will support the Ferris Wheel Innovation Center to organize and implement business pitch competitions in Flint. The grantee was established to help entrepreneurs in an economically disadvantaged community gain access to support that advances their business or product ideas.

Competition winners will receive financial resources and all participants will receive mentoring from business professionals.
