Starting a Business in Michigan
LINC began a business incubator in 2011. Today they also have coworking space. (Grand Rapids, MI)

Over the past few years, many CEDAM members have added new services to support small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs. Last month CEDAM connected with the I-69 Trade Corridor Michigan SBDC to film a Starting a Business class that covers everything entrepreneurs should consider to ensure that the business they start will be successful. We bundled the three hour workshop into an hour long video. Copies of the class materials are available below, as well as in the video description on YouTube.

The video is especially useful for those who are unable to make it to one of the many physical locations SBDCs host trainings in.
