Guy Scavone

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
None besides mentoring.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
It was a previous customer from my brokerage business that we had leased some office space to. They had a few vacant offices they wanted to rent out.

Where did you find your first employee?
It was a referral from a friend.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have been bootstrapping so far.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
There are excellent real estate deals for both business space and employee living opportunities. There is also tons of great, local talent.

What is one thing Michigan does better or has going for it that other more successful regional economies don't?
We have a strong sense of community. People here really get behind local businesses.

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?
Absolutely, I think the problem is the people reporting never bother to look beyond the stereotypes we face here. Anyone who really takes a closer look can plainly see the strides this state and city (Detroit) are making.
