Gov. Jennifer Granholm on Wednesday laid out initiatives to help entrepreneurs and small businesses, making them a key focus of an address shepherding in her final year in office.
In her eighth State of the State address touching on a variety of economic development and job-creating efforts designed to lay a new foundation for the state, Granholm announced plans to spur small business development in the state, through expanded entrepreneurship training, improved access to capital, and revamped tax credits for investors that provide seed money to budding ventures.
“She has coalesced around, as we have been talking about for a long time, the issue of where jobs really come from. And that is small business,” said Rob Fowler, president and CEO of the Small Business Association of Michigan.
