What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
Too many to list. We are continually researching and learning in every facet of our business.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Shortly after reorganization in late 2007, there were several. They include the state of Michigan (the Romney Building), Lamar/Ricoh (Times Square Billboard Lights), and a large manufacturer in the transportation industry.

Where did you find your first employee?
Several were already here.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We are funded by private investors.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
The region has a lot of manufacturing experience/capabilities for local businesses. Also there are a lot of engineering and development capabilities with out local businesses.

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
We need to realize that however large or small, an increasing number of businesses are now competing on a national or global scale. We also need to market Metro Detroit as a place for entrepreneurial young people to locate. It will entail a significant amount of research, coordination, and planning.
