As part of our yearlong project “The State of Small Business,” Business News Daily plans to report on the small business environment in every state in America. In this installment, we asked a few of Michigan’s nearly one million small business owners about the challenges and opportunities of operating in their state. Here’s what they had to say.
It’s no secret that Michigan’s economy took a big hit after the 2008 financial crisis, with the damage centering on the automotive industry in Detroit. But entrepreneurs now report the state is coming back strong. Where prospects once seemed dismal, small businesses are now optimistic for the future.
