What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
I have a Bachelors in Communication from Boston University, a Master's of Urban Planning and Economic Development from Wayne State University and I participate in Open City.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
We have received funding from Invest Detroit's Detroit Urban Retail Fund, Midtown Inc.'s Facade Improvement Grant and Midtown Inc.'s Security Grant.

What are some of the advantages to doing business here?
There is unbelievable support from neighborhood/community organizations, small businesses and residents.

If you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
The negative press that casts a shadow over Detroit. It's truly an amazing place to be, unfortunately too many mass media outlets conjure a different picture.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
Visit the local shops, connect with the surrounding community, hit the streets. The people make the place, and there are so many wonderful people willing to lend an ear and some advice. Detroit is a big small town city.
