Community Resources

Without the right resources, the process of starting your own business can be confusing, intimidating, and overwhelming. For this reason, MI2M's Jumpstart team continues to develop a robust collection or resources for prospective entrepreneurs.

  • Structuring Your Business — Jumpstart has collected a variety of resources to help you determine what sort of business you want to start, how to go about planning your business, and how to write your initial business plan.
  • Funding and Legal Assistance — Once you've determined what you want your business to look like, you'll need to figure out a way to finance your start-up, as well as complete the necessary legal work. Jumpstart can help connect you to a number of resources to do just that.
  • Marketing Your Business — In order to make sure your product or service reaches its intended audience as widely as possible, you'll need to make use of the proper marketing methods. First figuring out what your market looks like, and then deciding on the best way to reach them, are essential in helping your business thrive.

Finally, there are a number of Incubators and Business Spaces provided throughout Michigan you may want to explore. Finding a cheap and accessible space to work can be invaluable for any start-up entrepreneur.
