Detroit Garment Group says
The fourth in the DGG Fashion Business Workshops 12-month series is, "So You Want To Start a Business: Identifying (and Getting!) Funding". Money makes the world go 'round, and it sure makes it a lot easier to start - as well as expand - your business. Not sure where to start when it comes to getting funding? This workshop will prepare you to take that next step to get your business officially off the ground. Or just make it better.

The workshop, taking place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (feel free to bring your dinner!) on Tuesday, February 16 at TechTown, will be led by Rita Hillman, business consultant at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and will cover:
Different types of funding available (SBA loans, grants, crowdfunding)
Creating a financing checklist: what you need to have to get a loan
Preparing for the future: what you can do to ensure you get a loan if you're not ready now


Rita Hillman, Small Business Consultant for the Michigan Small Business Development Center, is the Small Business mentor for DGG's Fashion Incubator. As a Small Business Consultant at the Michigan Small Business Development Center (MI-SBDC), Rita works with new startups and existing businesses that have annual revenues of $750,000 or less. Consulting services provided by Small Business DevelopmentCenters (SBDC’s) consist of providing both potential and existing business owners with advice and resources for all aspects of the business in order to help companies launch, survive and grow. This is achieved with the creation of a new business plan or business expansion plan.

Rita also helps the potential or existing business owner obtain market research, financial industry data and create financial projections. Lastly, Rita works with potential and existing entrepreneurs to evaluate all aspects of the business plan idea and the operations for the existing business in order to help them secure business funding capital to help the business to start or grow.
