Segment Highlights Tools for Small Businesses in Southeast Michigan to Navigate Pandemic and Uncertainty
Donna Hover, Chapter Co-Chair of SCORE of Southeast Michigan, was interviewed recently for Rebound Detroit, an ongoing segment hosted by reporter Ameera David on Channel 7 Action News for WXYZ in Detroit. In the segment, David interviewed Hover and other experts to identify and highlight tools and resources available to small businesses in Southeast Michigan to help them cope with the Coronavirus and its economic impact.
"We support all of the small businesses in all of southeast Mich. So, that’s seven counties that we work with and over 100 volunteers," Donna Hover Ojeda said.
Ojeda is with Score Detroit , a resourceful nonprofit that small businesses can turn to. They offer one-on-one guidance through mentorship and counseling- and they do it for free.
For those who want the basics, Score is referring them to a funding portal, called startupspace.app
"It’s to be like a shopping center of all the free services that are out there," said Ojeda said.
Simply make a profile, click on the COVID-19 tab and tap into grants specifically available to the southeast Michigan small business community.
"Last I looked, there was twelve different places where you can get money," said Hover Ojeda.
