What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
We try to participate in events that bring together the entrepreneurial community such as BioArbor, SPARK networking events, and U-M Entrepalooza.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Accumed Systems, a medical device company that attended a BBC training session many years ago.

Where did you find your first employee?
Networking with colleagues

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
As a service business it is our customers (from larger economic development organizations to small companies) that provide the capital for us to grow. We, in turn, strive to provide the highest quality of service to those customers.

It's often said that Metro Detroit and Michigan need to reinvent their economies to be competitive. Are we making those changes, and if so are we making enough of them or doing it fast enough?
We are making many changes, some of which are long overdue and others made much too quickly. Hopefully the overall balance will be in a positive direction.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
To erase some of the boundaries, both geographical and financial, that keeps us from reaching out beyond our own region to find new solutions to the problems of our changing economy.
