Greg Basso

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
Personally, I hold a Masters in Business Administration from Western Michigan University.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
The Orsus Group. We found them through networking. It is still a client today.

Where did you find your first employee?
We found him through an internship program with International Academy of Design and Technology.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it?
We have promoted two interns to employee status.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have been self-funded from the beginning and will continue to do so on our sales alone.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
Plan every aspect of your business prior to seeking any client or business relationship. The biggest problem we see with new businesses today is their lack of initial planning.

What do you see in Metro Detroit that other people who live outside the area don't?
An extremely viable and forward thinking area. People only see us as the Motor City but we are far more than simply automotive.
