Mark Lichtman

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
B.S. Computer Science from MSU 1985, Executive MBA 1997 from Michigan State University, Board Member of the Detroit Chapter of the Entrepreneurs' Organization

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Cummings, McClorey Davis & Acho - Law Firm - worked with them at previous employer

Where did you find your first employee?
Personal relationship referral

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
No, we have not used interns

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We obtained a working line of credit early on and have had a long-standing relationship with Chase Bank.

What is one thing Michigan does better or has going for it that other more successful regional economies don't?
Michigan has a significant amount of businesses that are in our target market (i.e. 10- to 50-person companies) originally due to the manufacturing environment. With my experience with the Detroit Chapter of the Entrepreneurs' Organization, I can say Michigan has an abundance of ambitious and innovative business owners that will not give up. Our chapter is the fastest growing chapter in the country.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
I would advise someone to join Entrepreneurs Organization to get connected to successful, ambitious business owners to help start/grow their business.
